Geriatric/Older Adult Day Programs

  • We have a variety of treatment settings designed to best fit the unique mental health needs of older Americans.

    The Community Outpatient Program for the Elderly (COPE) treats behavioral and mental health issues without hospitalization and reduces symptom reoccurrence. It is licensed by the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS).

    For information, call:


    New patients receive treatment three days per week. Over time, they are reassessed and treatment gradually decreases until discharge.

    Outpatient treatment is tailored to provide group therapies to patients of similar problems. For example, patients who are recovering from schizophrenia would not be in group therapy with an adult who continues to be employed and lead a normal life while suffering from depression.

    COPE treatment options includes:

    • Psychiatric evaluation and assessment
    • Psychological testing
    • Developing trauma focused training
    • Medication management
    • Close watch of care level
    • Family meetings
    • Medication education and monitoring
    • Stress management
    • Psychoeducational groups
    • Health education
    • Nutrition information
    • Social service intervention
    • Coordination of care with families, boarding homes, intensive case managers
    • Re-evaluation throughout to ensure best possible course of treatment
