Philosophy of Care

We focus on crisis stabilization; our goal is to move individuals to a less-intensive level of care as soon as it is safe to do so.

Our caring and compassionate team has expertise in treating older adults with a variety of diagnoses, including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma-related disorders, early dementia, and more.

Who We Serve

Individuals generally come to our unit for care when their behavior has become problematic at home or in a nursing home; we are adept at identifying what led someone to our care, and resolving the issue in a safe and effective manner.
