Haven Offers Services for At-Risk Seniors

As America’s population ages, the need for mental and behavioral health services continues to increase.  Living with mental health problems can be challenging, and as an individual grows older, further health issues are often encountered.  Research shows that seniors are at a greater risk of some mental disorders and their complications than younger people.  Many people do not understand mental illness or even acknowledge its existence.  Some seniors are ashamed or frightened by their symptoms or believe that this is an inevitable part of aging.  Older people can suffer from a variety of psychiatric disorders, including depression and anxiety.  Memory disorders are also common among older adults.  Early intervention and treatment can alleviate symptoms of mental health problems and reconnect seniors to their previous lifestyles.

Haven Behavioral Hospital of Albuquerque provides inpatient psychiatric stabilization and treatment to older adults experiencing acute symptoms of depression, anxiety, mood swings or psychosis and those with co-occurring medical issues.  Haven is located in Gibson Medical Center, 5400 Gibson Boulevard SE, Albuquerque, NM 87108.  For more information on the services available at Haven, please call 505-219-1668.
