As an integral part of the interdisciplinary clinical team, Vitae’s licensed therapists focus on the mental and emotional well-being of residents with the goal of maximizing their quality of life from admission through discharge. Our therapists ensure patients, families and physicians are continuously updated throughout a resident’s stay with any mental health concerns in a timely manner.
Oftentimes residents in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may experience mental health or behavior issues as a result of a change in their environment and lifestyle. It’s common for residents to experience anxiety or depression related to lifestyle changes or to have concerns about family dynamics or a medical diagnosis. Vitae’s therapists complete a social history and psychosocial assessment for each resident to ensure their needs are identified and managed appropriately.
