Our approach has a strong emphasis on meeting a senior’s need for independence. Treatment includes assessment and diagnosis, symptom management, caregiver and family education, a structured therapeutic environment and aftercare planning.

We offer a therapeutic setting that considers the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of our elderly patient population.
