A team of health care professionals will talk with your family to create a well-rounded care plan that may include:
- Psychiatric evaluation – Reviews how your loved one thinks, feels, acts and remembers
- Group, family and individual therapy – Offers opportunities to talk with a licensed counselor one-on-one or with other people about ways to solve problems and feel better
- Medication education group – Explains the right way to use certain medicines
- Dietary consult – Shows how to choose and prepare nutritious, tasty foods
- Occupational therapy – Teaches how to more easily complete everyday tasks, such as getting dressed, cooking and cleaning
- Physical therapy – Teaches exercises that can make your loved one stronger, more flexible and more comfortable
- Social work – Helps your family find ways to fulfill everyday needs, such as transportation, housing, food and getting care for people who can’t be left alone
- Home health care – Sends caregivers into your home
- Spiritual care – Draws on your faith background for support and comfort
Even if your loved one needs more than our program can provide, we’ll help your family find other resources and services – such as inpatient behavioral health care or skilled nursing care.
