Older adults face special problems. The Mountainview focus is designed to diagnose and treat the complex symptoms of the elderly that are many times attributed to aging. Agitation, verbal outbursts, and odd, unpredictable thinking that is not based in reality are often characteristic of the symptoms shown in many elderly patients.
Many studies indicate that older adults are at greater risk for mental disorders and addictive diseases than younger age groups. It is estimated that between 60 and 70 percent of the elderly experience symptoms of mental illness, such as anxiety, psychosis, and cognitive impairments; with depression being the number one diagnosis.
Mountainview follows a carefully structured individualized treatment plan that focuses on the patient’s emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.
