The Golden years should be enjoyable as possible and at Mayhill, we can help. We understand and have professionals who are experts in working with the elderly. Our inpatient programs help improve functioning with daily visits with our Board Certified psychiatrist, group therapy, recreational therapy focused on the patient’s specific needs.
Special populations-Dementia and Depression
Older people who undergo depression have nearly double the risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, a new study finds. As many as 6 million Americans ages 65 and older undergo depression, but only about one in 10 receives treatment because depression is often not recognized or is wrongly considered a normal part of aging.
Mayhill’s medical director, Asad Islam, M.D., is Board Certified in Geriatric Medicine, which makes him uniquely qualified to treat this population.
