Gerontology

The Adult Developmental Center's Geriatric Psychological Service provides a full range of mental health services to older adults and their families. These comprehensive services are provided in our offices as well as in private homes, residential programs, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and hospitals. The Geriatric Psychological Service fills a unique need by providing continuous care to our elderly clients and their families as they face new life transitions, including changes in residence and decreased mobility.

Our goal is to enhance our patients' quality of life through maximizing individual potential and easing transitions. Our licensed therapists provide high quality, cost-effective assessment, treatment, and consultation. We work as a team with family members and other involved professionals to optimize each clientıs psychological well-being.
