Tippah County Hospital Intensive Outpatient Program addresses the emotional and behavioral needs of adults 65 or older, through a combination of therapies, education, community activities, and wellness programs. Our goal is to improve their daily functioning and quality of life. We provide a free assessment to determine an individual's symptoms and make recommendations for treatment in our program. Arrangements for a no-charge assessment at a nursing facility, an assisted living center, and a hospital or within a person's home may be scheduled. Our inpatient behavioral health program is staffed with an outstanding treatment team of psychiatrist, registered nurses, social workers, professional counselors and physicians who monitor medical and emotional needs of patients.
Sometimes we can't see the pain and troubles that others are feeling, but we can see the signs. More than half of all Americans will experience mental health issues in their lifetime, most often these issues arise within our elderly loved ones. Look for the signs, and when behavioral health troubles hit close to home, seek compassionate and professional help that's also close to home. For more information or to refer a loved one to our program, call 662-319-2042.
