Behavioral Health Overview

Here we have an overview of Behavioral Health. Speak with your Care Advocate regarding your specific needs.

Residential Behavioral Health facilities are not intended to be a permanent housing option and unlike other care facility types there are strict admission criteria that must be followed.

Generally, admission criteria is as follows:

  1. Presents with one or more psychiatric diagnoses requiring moderately complicated psychiatric and/or medical management.
  2. Presents with a substance use disorder with a high risk for continued chemical use if not in a structured, 24-hour treatment setting. Demonstrates moderate to high levels of denial and resistance to changing drug-using lifestyle.
  3. Presents with a pattern of moderate risk for danger to self or danger to others
  4. High risk for continued harmful behavior if not in a structured, 24-hour treatment setting.
  5. Moderate to high levels of denial and resistance to change, or history of failure to make adequate progress in an outpatient treating setting.

As noted previously, residential Behavioral Health facilities are not intended as a permanent housing option. The intent of this care option is to address the current presenting behavioral health issues and provide treatment so that the patient can discharge to a less restrictive long-term option in the community.

Most often, we see the need for these facilities when a client has dementia and they are suffering severe behavioral disturbances that present a threat to their safety or the safety of others. Many times these behavioral disturbances can be regulated with medication over the course of a few weeks or months at which point the most appropriate care setting would be Assisted Living or Memory Care.

The average cost of care ranges from $3,000/month to $6,000+/month.

The number of Behavioral Health facilities specializing in care for older adults is limited and for older adults with dementia with severe behavioral disturbances it is important to find a provider that understands their unique needs. Speak with your Care Advocate regarding your specific needs.

I could not be happier with the services provided by CareWise. Genevieve was incredibly professional and kind during the process of finding a home that could give the attention necessary for my brothers needs. Just having someone who would LISTEN to our needs took so much pressure off.

PATRICIA STEVENS

Patrick and Genevieve have worked tirelessly and with great expertise to help me find and vet the right facility for my mother. They have a broad and deep knowledge of the facilities in the greater Scottsdale area and have helped me with hundreds of details and important information about each of the choices I reviewed.

KRISTEN WALSTEDT

My elderly brother needed a new living arrangement after he convalesced following a hospital stay. My nephew connected with Patrick and Genevieve through the hospital and we could not have found the perfect place for my brother without them. There are so many options in the Phoenix area that none of us had the time to figure out what place would be best for him. The experience was great and they are both very caring and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them if a family was in need of finding the perfect place for a family member.
