Helping seniors find their way back 

Issues affecting seniors are uniquely challenging. When an individual’s emotional problems become disruptive and significantly affect his or her ability to care for basic personal needs, an increased level of care may be needed. Allow us to partner with you in making the future brighter for you and your loved one.

How to Begin 

Patients can be referred by self, family, physicians, hospitals, assisted living facilities, or nursing homes. For more information, or to take the next step, call The Sylvia Barr Center. A trained therapist will determine if the patient is appropriate for treatment on the unit and assist with the administration process. 

If the patient does not meet the criteria for inpatient care, alternative care and resources will be located and offered. 

The Sylvia Barr Center can help with any of the following:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Unresolved grief
  • Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias
  • Other mental health issues

Some issues are too much for an independent care giver to manage alone. Consult our staff if one or more of the following apply:

  • Confusion or disorentiation in familiar surroundings
  • Aggression, impulsivity, hyperactivity
  • Obsessive compulsive behaviors
  • Delusions/hallucinations
  • Lapses in speech
