Mental Health Services for Seniors with Dementia and Depression

Seniors who suffer from depression have a severe risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, which can make mental health services for the elderly important to their quality of life. 

Roughly six million Americans over the age of 65 develop depression, but only about one in ten receives treatment because depression is often not recognized or wrongly considered a normal part of aging. While many types of mental illness affect older adults, depression is by far the highest rate. 

Older adults in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan, Texas, area do not have to struggle with depression in silence. Our senior mental health program understands the needs of older adults and can provide the necessary treatment in a caring, compassionate environment. 

Mayhill Hospital offers a special older adult inpatient program run by the hospital’s medical director Asad Islam, MD. Dr. Islam is board-certified in geriatric medicine and uniquely qualified to treat the geriatric mental health. Call or contact us online for full details.

Senior Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders

Providing senior mental health and substance abuse services requires an understanding of the unique challenges and treatment options available for those in their golden years. Many loved ones and caregivers believe mental health issues are just part of growing old. 

While aging does involve medical conditions that may affect emotional state, emotional well-being is always important.

It is also common for patients to struggle with co-occuring substance abuse and mental health disorders. A treatment plan that targets drug addiction or alcohol abuse is necessary to get to the root of the problem.
