An individualized plan of care

A mental health plan of care involves a mind, body and social evaluation of an individual. The focus of the plan is to support the recovery from a high impact life event and to significantly reduce the probability of mental health issues, while instilling mindfulness and resiliency to help achieve a balanced life. Our plan of care includes:

  • Active psychiatric treatment with 24-hour access to a psychiatrist
  • Medication administration and monitoring, as needed
  • An aftercare plan linked to the presenting behaviors that resulted in the admission and that addresses post-hospitalization needs
  • Ensuring family and individual support systems are an active part of the treatment team to foster positive outcomes
  • Ongoing contact with personal caretakers, medical caretakers and the facility (when appropriate for purposes of aftercare planning)

What to bring:

In order to ensure a safe environment we limit personal items on the units. We offer laundry so it is not necessary to bring extra clothing.

  • Three outfit changes (no drawstrings or belts)
  • One pair of pajamas
  • A jacket or sweater if you/your loved one gets cold easily
  • Shoes that do not have shoelaces
