Older Adult & Senior Inpatient Treatment Program in Fort Myers

Park Royal offers a leading inpatient program for seniors in the Fort Myers area who are struggling with mental health disorders or substance abuse issues.

Treatment Program for Seniors

Understanding Mental Health Disorders in Seniors

Besides the mental health problems adults of any age may face, such as bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder and others, older adults may be particularly prone to depression and anxiety as well as dementia.

Contrary to belief, depression and anxiety are not a normal part of aging. Because many people think those conditions are inevitable, older adults often suffer in silence. And their numbers are great.

Expert Staff

Expert Staff to Provide Holistic Care

But whatever the diagnosis, help is available through Park Royal Hospital’s inpatient geriatric program for adults over 65. Treatment involves multi-disciplinary teams, including psychiatrists, social workers, therapists, primary care physicians, physical therapists, dietitians and around-the-clock clinical and nursing staff .

Why is that important?

Because mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression – the most common psychiatric problems among older adults – impair a person’s physical health and ability to function. For instance, depression in an older person with heart disease can make heart disease worse. At the same time, it’s common for older adults with heart disease or other medical conditions to suffer from depression. And even mild depression lowers a person’s immune responses and may leave that person more vulnerable to infections and cancers.

Memory loss is an another common issue among the older population, whether due to Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia. While Park Royal Hospital does not admit patients strictly for a diagnosis of dementia, it may accompany a psychiatric diagnosis.

All of these issues can make treatment and support for an older adult particularly difficult. Some patients become placement challenges because the housing arrangements they had prior to admission do not provide the level of care they need. When possible, family involvement in these decisions is desired because patients often have limited capacity to make good decisions.

But our staff is equipped to help with all of those issues.
