Your "golden years" are meant for relaxation after a lifetime of hard work. But for many seniors, it can be a time of distress due to factors such as declining health and the loss of loved ones or independence. Loss and a diminished quality of life can lead to increased emotional and psychological symptoms or a stay in an inpatient behavioral health hospital unit.
 
Levindale's short-term Partial Hospitalization Program helps older adult patients experiencing behavioral and emotional difficulties avoid psychiatric hospitalization and transition from inpatient care.
 
Our program is ideal for adults 60 and older who require intensive outpatient therapy five days a week from accomplished, compassionate, skilled professionals, but also for anyone who is at risk due to increasing mental health issues. We emphasizes therapeutic treatment—including individual and group therapies—as a way of coping with daily life.
