Our Holistic Approach to Healing

We offer an inpatient holistic care program designed to meet the specific challenges and needs of older adults as they face a new and unfamiliar set of circumstances. As we age, declining physical health, diminished mental processes, separation from lifetime companions, and the loss of personal independence can be overwhelming. Specific treatment for such mental health conditions can improve the quality of life experiences for older adults.

Genesis is Growing

In the summer of 2016, the Genesis SEC program will more than double its current patient capacity, growing from 10 to 25 inpatient beds. Patients with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia—as well as those with issues such as depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder—can benefit from our holistic approach to treatment of senior adults who experience behavioral and emotional issues. We address behavioral and psychiatric issues in conjunction with preexisting medical conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, hypothyroidism and osteoarthritis.

Under the guidance of Eddie Huggins, MD, Medical Director, Genesis SEC provides new hope for seniors with treatment that integrates behavioral interventions, therapy, and medication evaluation and management to improve longevity and quality of life.
