Senior Mental Health Services
The Senior Mental Health In-patient Program at Glendora Community Hospital
provides a caring, supportive environment in which each patient participates
in a therapeutic program that’s specifically designed to meet his
or her needs. Our In-patient Program is intended for adults age 55 and older.
Through a structured plan of individual psychotherapy, group therapy,
planned activities and family support, the goal is to assist patients
to return to as normal a life as possible. To attain that goal, we make
sure that the care and concern of the Treatment Team continues even after
the patient leaves our hospital. Patients are given the opportunity to
regain the social, physical and emotional skills they once had. Our Treatment
Team is comprised of trained professionals led by a psychiatrist specializing
in geriatric psychiatry.
WARNING SIGNALS WHEN SOMEONE NEEDS HELP
Growing older can mean the chance to relax and enjoy life. For many people,
however, growing older also means suffering the loss of a spouse or lifelong
friends, becoming ill with chronic disease, losing financial security
or losing physical capabilities. For some older adults, these problems
can lead to stress, depression or other emotional difficulties.
When these difficulties become too severe, it can cause serious changes
in behavior that family members sometimes ignore or misinterpret, believing
the problem to be the inevitable result of aging, instead of an illness
that responds to treatment.
Glendora Commmunity Hospital’s Senior Mental Health In-patient program
addresses the psychological and medical aspects of mental health problems
unique to the older adult.
