Behavioral Health & Late Life Depression
Rx HealthCare Services offers home behavioral health for patients who are homebound and may be experiencing late life depression and similar conditions. Our specialized team work in close contact with patients and the patient’s physician to provide education, observe and report behaviors and crisis, and to intervene appropriately. Behavioral home health staff have a unique role in creating a milieu which will provide for the comfort, care, and growth of the patient. Home behavioral health provides patients with a smooth transition from hospitalization through home health and back into the community. Most importantly, by allowing and encouraging the patient to gain independence as soon as possible, a patient can soon realize that his/her treatment is a temporary method for dealing with the illness and not a permanent condition.

Late life depression
Late life depression is a true and treatable condition. While it is not a normal part of the aging process, older adults have an increased risk for experiencing depression. It is also more common in those who have other illnesses, and those whose function has become limited.
Rx HealthCare Services offer in-service training presentations and education for both staff and the community covering:
- Late life depression; the signs, symptoms and solutions
- Depression management
- Behavioral management
- Medication management
- Self-care management
- Disease management
- Relapse prevention
- Symptom reduction
Rx HealthCare Services' goal is to create a comfortable and secure environment for patients suffering with behavioral health illness. By employing an interdisciplinary team of highly experienced professionals, no stone is left un-turned when it comes to the patient’s recovery. Fewer ER visits and decreased hospitalizations occur through home behavioral health due to the attention and interventions, therefore leaving patients and their families with reduced out-of-pocket expenses.
