Senior Health Services
Seniority Has Its PrivilegesAging brings along new experiences, tasks and challenges. At Valley Baptist, we understand and address the needs of those over age 50 through a variety of specialized care programs and services.
Behavioral Health Services for Seniors
Our intensive outpatient program can be beneficial for adults throughout the lifespan. People ages 50 and older may be at a time in their lives during which they face tremendous loss — loss of a parent, a spouse or child, as well as other life changes that can cause depression if left untreated.
We work hard to improve the coping skills of our patients and make sure no one leaves the program until they have met their goals. Our senior health services are provided in a safe, supportive environment that offers personalized treatment, including group, individual and family therapy. Transportation is provided.
Seniors’ Choice Club
