Welcome to Senior Behavioral Health
Early intervention may prevent your loved one from prolonged suffering. Senior Behavioral Health is a short-term inpatient treatment process for adults aged 55 and over who are experiencing behavioral and/or emotional problems. We are conveniently located in the Kobacker Center on the UTMC campus, so additional health concerns can also be addressed.

Senior Behavioral Health
Senior Behavioral Health strives to effectively treat the unique emotional needs and health-care issues encountered during the aging process. Our team is committed to creating a warm, supportive atmosphere. An individualized treatment plan is developed for each patient based on his or her evaluation. The team also works with each patient (along with his or her family) to develop appropriate aftercare plans. Prior to discharge, our team will explore and recommend appropriate settings and resources to assist the patient based on his or her level of functioning.
