Bridges

Geriatric Care

Your Loved Ones Don’t Have To Face The Struggles Of Aging Alone

Bridges is the signature Geriatric Care Program at Stilwell Memorial Hospital. For those within our community who are subject to having to face the struggles of aging, we provide specialist, tailored care that encompasses relevant diagnostics, psychiatric care, and other treatment services.

As a specialist type of geriatric care program, we have developed independently, we are incredibly proud of this service, and the level of attentiveness and care provisions that we provide to our patients.

The program focuses on the changes that patients experience in their emotional or behavioral health. These problems may include Alzheimer’s, along with other forms of dementia, depression, anxiety, and aging adjustments. Bridges provide patients with an individualized treatment plan that also includes group and family therapy, structured daily activities, as well as any relevant medical care.
