GENERATIONS TREATMENT FOR MATURE ADULTS

CREATING BALANCE

Generations helps improve the quality of life for patients and their families utilizing appropriate psychiatric crisis interventions for those with symptoms including:

  • Depression
  • Suicidal attempts or threats
  • Loss of appetite, sleeplessness or social isolation
  • Psychosis
  • Mood disorders
  • Anger, aggression or combative behaviors
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Anxiety-related disorders
  • Chemical dependency and substance abuse
  • Substantial grief and loss
  • Cognitive impairments stemming from mental health origins

 

Our specialty program includes chemical detoxification (prescription drugs, illicit drugs and alcohol) for individuals with co-occurring psychiatric and substance abuse disorders.

Our program also provides ongoing medical treatments for those patients who may require medical assistance. Although we are not a medical surgical hospital, the Generations program is able to effectively treat the underlying physical /medical problems of our patients. Patients who are post-surgical or have debilitating medical conditions such as diabetes, congestive heart disease, wound care, respiratory problems, etc. may all be treated in conjunction with their mental health concerns.

THE PROGRAM

Based on the initial psychiatric and medical assessment and orders obtained from the admitting psychiatrist, a Master Treatment Plan is initiated. The plan is formally reviewed by the attending psychiatrist and program staff and updated and revised as necessary throughout the patient’s stay. Psychiatric and medical condition problems are identified, short and long term goals are established, and interventions developed by the Treatment Team as well as the patient and family /guardian / legal custodian.

FAMILY MEETINGS

Family meetings and involvement are important parts of the treatment process. The Social Services Department and Program Therapists will establish family meetings during the patient’s stay in order to assist in the overall discharge plan for the patient. Guardians and other responsible individuals will be included as identified.
