Designed to meet the behavioral health needs of older adults who require supportive medical care, Holly Hill’s Medical Psychology Geriatric Program includes a specialized medical evaluation, an assessment of daily living skills and a full psychosocial assessment and intervention.

The program addresses a wide range of concerns, including:

  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Anxiety disorders
  • PTSD
  • Substance abuse
  • Supportive medical care (as required)
  • Substance abuse

A typical day on the geriatric unit includes group therapy, recreation therapy and wellness education. Patients see a psychiatrist and medical doctor throughout their stay, and 24-hour nursing care is provided.

Patients in our Geriatric Program engage in our Treatment Trails programming, which acts as a guide for the patient in helping them set goals, overcome their illness and utilize new coping skills. Participation in treatment and discharge planning by the patient’s family or support system is important and encouraged as it notably helps the patient in their recovery process.
