Senior Behavioral Health Care

Silver Lights Care Center, our Senior Behavioral Health Center, specializes in the behavioral health care, more formally known as geriatric psychiatric care, for adults 55 years of age and older. The 12-bed, secured facility serves adults experiencing:

  • Dementia with behavioral changes
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Substance Abuse
  • Suicidal Ideations
  • Grief and/or loss
  • And many other mental health conditions


A team of medical professionals, including a psychiatrist, nurse practitioner, social worker, activity coordinator, and nurses, develop individualized treatment plans to meet the needs of each patient:

  • Comprehensive medical and psychiatric evaluation
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Activity therapy groups
  • Medication management and education
  • Assistance with long-term placement, if needed
  • Referrals for community services, such as home health or hospice/palliative care
  • Referrals for outpatient therapy services as requested 

SLCC Senior Behavioral Health emphasizes family involvement. Family members are encouraged to participate in weekly treatment team meetings with staff to discuss the patient’s progress.  


Referrals may be made by family members or any medical professional who feel an individual may benefit from this type of treatment. Call 229-424-7268 for more information and to make a referral. The information is then reviewed by our Psychiatric Director to determine if the individual is eligible for inpatient treatment. Our admissions nurse will then reach out to discuss the next steps with you.


You can fax referrals to 229-424-7311.
