Behavioral Health Programs/Support Groups
The Behavioral Health Center for Older Adults at Aria Health - Bucks Campus, offers 24 hour comprehensive hospital - based care to adults 55 years of age and older who are experiencing acute psychiatric problems. We offer individualized care in a warm, supportive atmosphere. Treatment includes individual meetings with psychiatrists and group therapists to assist with emotional, mental, physical and medication needs. Our nurses, psychiatrists, trained counselors and social workers can help with all aspects of a person's life.
Two Quality Programs:
Inpatient program involves stabilizing the crisis that led to the hospitalization. A through physical and mental evaluation is completed to determine the cause or causes of the psychiatric problem. An average length of stay is dependent on patient needs. We focus on developing the patient's highest possible level of indepenence and preservation of individual dignity.
Intensive Outpatient Program provides up to four hours of structured therapy per day, allowing patients to maintain their daily routines and live at home. This level of care is especially beneficial as an interim step from inpatient care to home, and for a person experiencing the symptoms of severe depression.
