Caring for Elders with Depression and Mental Illness

Dignity, choice, and self-determination.

Living Well Assisted Living at Home In-home Care

We specialize in working with elders who suffer from mental illnesses, often called gero-psychiatric patients. The most common diagnoses in gero-psychiatric patients include depression, dementia, psychosis and anxiety. Seniors with mental illness find it more difficult dealing with adjustments in lifestyle, such as isolation or loss of independence. Medical conditions or physical diseases complicate the challenges they face.

There are not enough mental health facilities nationwide to accommodate elders, or assisted living facilities with specialized services to meet their needs. By providing gero-psychology training for companions and in-home caregivers and promoting the values of dignity, choice, self-determination and individuality, Living Well closes the gap.

Our homecare spans a continuous spectrum that we tune to individual needs and desires, always preserving individual dignity, adapting to change as it occurs. View the types of services we provide.
