Our Treatments

Individual Psychotherapy

Often the individual experiences mild emotional or behavioral symptoms related to their experience of memory loss, and supportive therapy sessions may be clinically indicated to assist the individual. Mood disorders, behavioral dysfunctions, and other concerns can also be addressed by doing an Individual Psychotherapy session. Lastly, we can provide individual therapy for family members who may be experiencing guilt, depression, loss, or anxiety as well.

Group Therapy

Group therapy gives individuals a safe and comfortable place where they can work out problems and emotional issues. Individuals gain insight into their own thoughts and behavior, and offer support to others. In addition, individuals who have issues with interpersonal relationships can benefit from the social interactions that are a basic part of the group therapy experience.

Psychoeducation Classes

Our clinicians can provide group psychoeducation classes to each community they serve in to provide education to residents, family members, and to SLC staff. We can cover topics such as Normal Aging vs. Dementia, Music Therapy and Memory, The Disease Process and What to Expect, Grief and Loss, Shame and Guilt, Art Therapy and Memory, and much more. We are dedicated to offering support to our clients, families and staff members in the communities we serve.

Family and Couples Therapy

Family therapy is an essential part of the treatment plan, as family members can be most helpful in enlisting the individual’s involvement in therapy and activities. Involvement of family-members is also essential in order to provide education about the disease process and skills that might assist in communication and support of their loved one. Family therapy provides support to caregivers and patients, with individualized goals developed depending on the family and patient needs.

Behavior Therapy

Behavior Therapy is used to help treat many of the emotional challenges and behaviors that are associated with dementia, such as anxiety, depression, agitation, aggression and delusional thinking. Behaviors such as wandering, hoarding, physical aggression, etc. present management challenges to caregivers, and are treated by first assessing for the potential cause.

Our Assessments

Standardized Diagnostic Interview

A standard biopsychosocial evaluation to understand important medical and social background information, as well as current cognitive and psychological functioning. This evaluation data will help inform the baseline assessment that each individual undergoes. Information obtained from the clinical diagnostic interview will lead to a preliminary diagnostic impression and initial ideas for treatment plan.

Neuropsychological Assessment

This is assessment is conducted at some point early in the patient’s course of treatment to provide more detailed information regarding the patient’s cognitive and psychological functioning. From this data we can determine a presence of Dementia and staging (Mild, Moderate, Severe) if necessary. It involves many hours to administer, interpret and write-up, and can only be administered annually, if clinically indicated.

Quarterly Re-examinations

The results of each follow up assessment will help our clinicians understand if the treatment thus far has been successful in stabilizing or improving the resident’s cognitive, emotional, and psychological functioning. Our main goal is the stabilization and maintenance of cognitive, emotional, and psychological well-being. This will help inform future treatments.

Baseline Psychological Examination

Our Psychologists conduct a baseline assessment that provides an individual’s initial cognitive and psychological functioning, determining whether treatment is recommended. This testing occurs every 12 weeks to show stabilization or improvement of cognitive, emotional, and psychological benefit to the program. Assessment data allows us to monitor cognitive, emotional, and psychological status over time.

Neurobehavioral Assessment

We coordinate with the family and community’s staff to understand what target behaviors we will need to address to create an appropriate plan. For example, why a person may be acting out or experiencing ongoing agitation, yelling, hitting, etc. This assessment will help us identify 1-2 target behaviors to address. Creative and individualized approaches are then developed by our clinicians to decrease occurrence of the behavior.
