Program Hope - Senior Behavioral Health

The Program

Senior adults and their caregivers have unique problems and needs. Physical decline, loss of independence, safety concerns, and multiple losses are just a few that require special attention and are contributory to depression and other mental health issues for senior adults.

Program Hope is an outpatient program that provides individualized treatment for older adults who suffer from emotional or psychiatric disorders. The program includes group, individual or family therapy.

This program provides outpatient treatment Monday through Friday in the least restrictive environment and patients are able to return to their homes each evening. Lunch and snacks are provided for those attending group sessions. Complimentary transportation can be provided to those individuals with medical, physical or financial needs. The vans are equipped with wheelchair lifts.
