Mental health care for older adults

Older adults and their family members often overlook mental health conditions, thinking that symptoms are part of aging or other health concerns. According to the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry, the suicide rate is highest among people 65 and older, compared to all other age groups. Additionally, mental illness symptoms may be masked by other conditions.

Mental health plays a unique role in the health and well being of older adults. Older adults have very special mental and emotional needs that require experienced professionals to effectively treat and diagnose.

We take a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating mental health conditions in older adults. This includes listening and responding to every need of the older adult and helping families understand ways to help their loved ones.

Common Conditions

Common mental health issues found in older adults:

  • Depression
  • Dementia
  • Anxiety
  • Late-life schizophrenia
  • Coping with sudden change (i.e. death of a spouse)
