Elders face a time that can provide many unique emotional challenges. Retirement, illness, or loss of loved ones can all affect how well one deals with the retirement years. Sometimes anxiety and depression can seriously interfere with an individual's quality of life. CCBC provides expert counseling and psychiatric services to address these issues and help the individual to return to a more satisfying way of living.

Partial Hospitalization Elder Track Program
CCBC provides an intensive, structured, therapeutic milieu for elders whose mental status has destabilized and requires skilled outpatient mental health interventions in lieu of inpatient treatment. The program offers a supportive and caring environment as a stabilizing base for clients to learn new coping and problem solving skills. The track specifically focuses on the needs and challenges of the geriatric population, paying particular attention to co-occurring medical conditions.
If an elderly person's mental health needs become so acute that they require the structure and safety of a 24-hour inpatient setting, CCBC works closely with the Morton Hospital Elder Behavioral Health Services Unit, to provide a comprehensive set of treatment services emphasizing continuity of care and follow up.
