Older Adult Services provides mobile mental health services and episodic treatment services to community-dwelling older adults (60 and older) that emphasize individual needs, strengths, choices, and involvement in service planning and implementation. We seek to identify those situations which could benefit from services leading to a better quality of life for older adults disabled by mental illness.

 

Our staff seeks to reach homebound older adults, help the clients and their families understand mental illness, provide the needed services, information and referral that would improve the client’s life, help older adult clients obtain the highest level of independent functioning, and prevent the need for hospitalization or long term placement out of the home.
