MedOptions partners with skilled nursing and assisted living facilities across the nation to provide expert behavioral health services, improving the overall mental health in elderly patients through the use of memory care evaluations, medication management, and behavioral interventions. Our clinicians are experienced in dementia care and Alzheimer’s care, long term behavioral health care in elderly populations, and memory care services.
MedOptions multidisciplinary teams are comprised of psychiatrists, psychologists, nurse practitioners, and licensed clinical social workers. Our clinicians collaborate with our partnering skilled nursing and assisted living facilities to provide elderly mental health services conveniently onsite.
Our clinicians begin by completing all appropriate assessments and evaluations, then determining an individualized plan for the treatment of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, mental illness, and overall emotional health. We combine both medication management as well as behavioral interventions and psychotherapy to help the patient experience mental health rehabilitation, improve the patient’s quality of life, and enhance patient and family satisfaction.
