Every stage of life brings new challenges and new opportunities. Aging adults require specific emotional and mental health services tailored to their situations. In a continuing effort to provide holistic care, Howard Memorial Hospital has opened the doors to a new program, Compass Geriatric Behavioral Health.
This program is specifically designed to provide for the mental and emotional needs of area senior citizens. Our intensive outpatient experience features a multidisciplinary approach that draws upon a full range of treatment methods and techniques, including psychiatric evaluations, psychosocial assessment and history, nursing assessment, and laboratory monitoring. Whether it is grief, loss of independence or a psychiatric illness, our experts are here to assist you.
Physician referral is not required. For assessments and consultations call 870-845-6069. We look forward to hearing from you.
