The Generations Program is an acute older adult inpatient hospitalization program that has been designed exclusively to help our clients cope with the emotional problems or stressors that older adults may be experiencing. Our physicians, nurses, intake specialists, and licensed social workers treat each client we meet with the dignity they deserve. Your family will be included in your treatment and we will help educate your loved ones about the challenges you are experiencing and ways to cope with the potential difficulties in the future.
Some of the emotional struggles we treat in our Generations program include:
- Late-life depression
- Fears and phobias
- Grief and loss
- Memory loss
- Medication challenges – non-compliance and/or medication interactions
- Distress about chronic health problems
We believe that you are a unique person who has a rich history of life experiences— your current stresses and challenges are only a fraction of who you are. Our Generations program operates under the belief that the aging process does not eliminate your capacity to learn and change. We’ll encourage insight, initiative, and empowerment provided in a comfortable homelike atmosphere with care guided by compassionate and caring staff. Your treatment team, under the direction of a physician and input from you and your family, will work to create an individualized plan of care for your stay with us. Our staff will guide you through every step of your care, ensuring that we treat you with the dignity and respect you deserve. Our therapeutic approaches include:
Individual therapy will help you work privately with your physician and therapist to discuss your emotions, medication, life experiences, and work to find resolution to the problems you are facing.
Family therapy may be used to open up the lines of communication and increase the understanding of each person’s needs.
Group therapy can help you work with others who are struggling with similar challenges. Talking with and sharing with your peers in a group setting can provide support, empathy, and solutions to problems.
Recreation therapy can help you express yourself through activities such as singing, reminiscing, playing games, crafts, gardening, and exercising to music. All these activities can help provide an outlet for stress and lift your spirits.
Activities of daily living (ADLs) can teach you positive, productive ways to cope with physical limitations and memory loss. ADLs can teach you ways to reduce stress and anxiety in your daily routine. We will offer group ADLs to teach you the skills that will help increase independence and functioning.
