There are several types of psychiatric illnesses that senior adults experience. The highly trained Parkridge Valley Senior Life psychiatrists and mental health specialists treat the following:
- Behavioral and Psychological Disorders of Dementia
Patients with an illness such as dementia or Alzheimer's disease may experience behavioral and psychiatric complications as their disease progresses. We structured our program to treat these complications and to include support and educational sessions for caregivers of memory-impaired adults.
- Mood Disorders
Life transitions, personal loss and medical problems are only a few of the reasons the aging process can become more complicated. Our treatment programs address the mental health needs of senior adults experiencing depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts.
- Neurological Disorders
Our treatment programs are tailored to meet the psychiatric and physical health needs of individuals suffering from psychiatric symptoms associated with neurological disorders, such as Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis and stroke.
- Chronic Mental Illness
Aging adults who suffer from serious persistent mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder have special social, physical and psychiatric needs. Our programs offer comprehensive treatment that addresses the full spectrum of every patient's individual needs when exacerbations of their mental illness require hospitalization.
