Transitions specializes in
mental health care and services for geriatric patients. Both inpatient and outpatient
services are provided under the direction of a full time psychiatrist.
Our treatment team is well established in the therapeutic community and
offers patients a host of resources that may be beneficial for treatment.
We provide patients with a compassionate, nonjudgmental ear— the
sharing of your experiences with others can be a tremendous source of
relief and aid in your overall recovery.
This program involves several daily scheduled activities, some or all of
which you may be asked to participate in. Services are provided by a team
of highly qualified professionals, including a physician, nurses, mental
health techs, and therapists.
While in the program, we ask that you attend all prescribed activities/groups
on a regular basis. In addition, we ask that you participate in the program
by interacting with your peers in a helpful manner and maintaining a clean,
neat and safe unit environment.
