The "golden years" are supposed to be a time of relaxation after a lifetime of hard work. Unfortunately, for many of our elders, those years can also be a time of loss – whether it is loss of health, friends, family, mobility or independence.

Loss and diminished quality of life may lead to an increase in psychological symptoms or a stay in an inpatient behavioral health hospital unit. Levindale's Partial Hospitalization Program helps participants avoid psychiatric hospitalization or transition from an inpatient unit following a hospitalization.

The Partial Hospitalization Program is designed to help participants avoid psychiatric hospitalization and assist their transition from an inpatient setting. The program is open to adults, usually 60 and older, who require intensive outpatient therapy five days a week from an accomplished, compassionate staff of skilled professionals. Therapeutic treatment emphasizes ways to cope with daily life.
