Behavioral Health

Mental health plays an essential role in the overall well-being of seniors. At Spring View Hospital, we provide both therapy and medication management for senior adults battling mental health conditions. Whether a loved one is experiencing increased anxiety and depression that interferes with their ability to function at their best, or suffering from behavioral issues resulting from dementia, we can offer a compassionate treatment plan for adults 55 and older that's customized to their unique needs, to help give them and you a better quality of life. With proper care, your senior loved ones can get back to leading the healthy, productive life they deserve.

If you would like more information about our secure program or if you or someone you know needs care, call 270.692.5210.
