St. Simons By-The-Sea provides compassionate behavioral health services for senior adults suffering from a psychiatric disorder or chemical dependency. Determining a senior adult’s need for inpatient treatment can be difficult because not all behaviors and conditions are psychiatric in nature. Our goal is to assess the situation and, if appropriate, respond with evidence-based care.
After a patient is admitted, we develop an individualized treatment plan to address his or her psychiatric and social needs. Inpatient treatment includes a psychiatric evaluation, daily psychiatric assessment, group psychotherapy, medication management, activity therapy, family education and illness/wellness education.
Clear documentation of the patient’s behaviors and condition is very helpful in determining if he or she may benefit from treatment at St. Simons By-The-Sea.
