Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Generations Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Generations outpatient program for seniors is dedicated to addressing behavioral health issues unique to an aging population. Some topics covered are grief and loss, changes in physical functioning, transitions such as retirement, changes in living situations and loss of independence.

Generations groups are facilitated by a licensed marriage and family therapist and overseen by a board-certified psychiatrist, licensed program director and a registered nurse.

Located in Chino, California, the Generations Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) at Canyon Ridge Hospital is designed as an alternative to hospitalization when suitable. Patients may be enrolled directly into a PHP program or may be “stepped down” from a hospital setting to facilitate the quickest return to the home setting. PHP offers all of the program intensity of acute inpatient care without having to stay in the hospital overnight.

Our senior adult partial hospitalization program consists of multiple treatment modalities provided in a coordinated manner to achieve short-term stabilization of immediate crises. Skilled nursing care is provided as well as routine treatment supervision by a psychiatrist. Partial Hospitalization is time-limited and concludes when the patient’s immediate presenting problem is stabilized or resolved.

Advantages of PHP

  • Patient continues to live at home, but comes to hospital for care
  • Weekly psychiatric oversight and supervision
  • Multidisciplinary treatment team
  • Stabilization of condition that would otherwise result in hospitalization
  • Hospital stays may be shortened by “step down” to PHP
  • Less intensive, less expensive alternative to hospitalization

Generations Partial Hospitalization Program is offered five days a week from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Mental Health for Older Adults

Seniors do not have to struggle with mental disorders alone. Elderly mental health services can make an impact. 

According to the World Health Organization, nearly 15% of the population over 60 in the world are impacted by mental health issues – it is a much more common issue than you might think. It is extremely important to keep an eye on warning signs and potential mental health issues. 

Do not dismiss potential signs of crisis or emotional distress, bipolar disorder, depression or anxiety as something that just comes with old age. Senior mental health is important, and our programs are designed to provide quality mental health services for elderly patients. 

Unfortunately, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mental health disorders in older adults are only expected to get worse. The global population for this age group is expected to double by 2050, meaning that mental health in seniors could be one of the biggest health crises to keep an eye on in the distant future. 

Older adult mental health is not an issue that is going to go away on its own anytime soon, and it is important that you get your loved one the help they need as early as possible. 

There is no reason to put off asking for help for  your loved one. Reach out to us today to get started and make a difference in their lives and yours.
