Silver Lining Senior Inpatient Services
CenterPointe’s senior adult program, Silver Lining, is specifically designed to help older adults cope with emotional problems or stressors they may be experiencing in life. For example, many seniors experience severe depression, anxiety, fears, confusion, disorientation, memory loss, medication issues and distress related to decline in health.
The staff at CenterPointe are dedicated to treating all senior adults as individuals, and also to working with each senior’s family to help them understand what their loved one is experiencing and how to cope with certain difficulties in the future.
CenterPointe holds the philosophy that each senior adult is unique with a rich history of life experiences. Current stressors and difficulties represent only a small part of who the senior adult is. We partner with the senior and their family or residence facility in the treatment of those issues, and we also celebrate with the senior the other characteristics they possess.
We also operate on the belief that the aging process does not eliminate the capacity to learn and change. To the highest potential of the senior adult’s abilities, we encourage insight, initiative and empowerment. Our environment and programming are tailored to meet the specific needs of older adults and we offer a comfortable, homelike atmosphere, with caring compassionate staff to help the senior through each step of their treatment.
Under the direction of the psychiatrist, and with input from the senior adult and family, a multidisciplinary treatment team develops an individualized treatment plan for each senior. The treatment team is typically comprised of a psychiatrist, internal medicine physician, advanced practice nurse or physician assistant, a master’s prepared social worker, a therapeutic recreation therapist, psychiatric nurses, certified nurse assistants, dietician, and mental health technicians. Together, we provide a clinically sophisticated, safe, supportive and responsive treatment environment.
The treatment regimen is designed to meet each senior’s specific needs through a variety of approaches, and may include individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, therapeutic recreation therapy, and activities of daily living.
Our senior adult program does not set age limits. Studies indicate that impaired cognitive symptoms can present as early as 40, while another senior at 70 or 80 could be high-functioning with regards to cognition, but may be experiencing severe depression. Therefore, each senior adult is assessed by the physician and treatment team to ensure each patient receives the appropriate clinical programming.
Our senior adult may provide treatment for a variety of the following behavioral health conditions, including, but not limited to:
- Severe Depression
- Severe Anxiety
- Suicidal Ideation
- Marked Personality Changes
- Excessive Fears and Suspiciousness
- Alterations in Sleeping and Eating Patterns
- Altered Perceptions, such as Delusions and Hallucinations
- Non-compliance with Outpatient Treatments and Medication Regimens
- Withdrawal from Family, Friends and Others
- Substance Abuse such as Prescription Drugs, Alcohol, Illegal Drugs
Adult Inpatient Services
CenterPointe Hospital provides intensive psychiatric acute care to stabilize an immediate crisis and help provide patients with the skills to prevent future crisis situations. Our inpatient psychiatric care is a highly structured crisis stabilization model with emphasis on identifying crisis symptoms, stabilizing behaviors, identifying environmental supports and increasing coping skills of each patient.
CenterPointe offers acute inpatient care for adults age 18 and up who are experiencing moderate to severe psychiatric and behavioral problems. Our inpatient adult psychiatric services and programs are tailored to the patient’s needs, enabling them to more effectively cope with emotions and behaviors that may be interfering with the attainment of a happy, successful life.
Hospitalization should be reserved for situations when round-the-clock safety, observation and care are required. For that reason, CenterPointe is designed to be a nurturing environment for intensive mental health treatment including observation, diagnosis, individual and group psychotherapy and medication management. It is a safe place to be for individuals who are feeling out of control, having thoughts of harming themselves or someone else, having trouble taking care of themselves or their family or if they are experiencing other serious symptoms.
Under the direction of the attending psychiatrist, CenterPointe’s multidisciplinary treatment teams consists of master’s level therapists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, dietician, therapeutic activity therapists, and mental health technicians. Treatment is based on the belief that, through a combination of medically managed care and therapeutic intervention and education, patients can learn to effectively manage their illness and cope with the effects on their lives.
Treatment emphasizes return-to-life strategies and cognitive therapies to help patients transition from the hospital smoothly and in the shortest possible time. Our personalized treatment and aftercare plans address a broad range of needs, with specific consideration to each patient. Comprehensive assessment and treatment may include individual and group therapy, as well as family education.
