Senior Intensive Support

Formerly called Senior Care Case Management, Central’s Senior Intensive Support (SIS) Team, in collaboration with Montgomery County Aging and Adult Services, will work with you to provide emotional support and resource coordination. Our SIS team will work side by side with you to increase socialization, build relationships, complete housing referrals, provide medication monitoring and environmental management. Our goal is to support you in meeting your needs while allowing you to remain in your home ensuring that you can thrive independently in the community.

  • Are you 60 years of age or older, reside in Montgomery County and find yourself struggling to care for your daily needs?
  • Do you find yourself needing support obtaining food, managing medication, completing daily activities, or managing your finances?
  • Do you wish to be connected to supports to help assist you with maintaining an active and rewarding life?

Senior Outreach Services (SOS)

At Central, our Senior Outreach Services (SOS) team is supported by a psychiatrist, SOS Coordinator and licensed clinical social worker. The SOS team will  visit with you in your home to discuss how you are feeling and explore with you how best we can support your emotional needs.

  • Are you 60 years of age or older and struggling with mental health concerns?
  • Have you been diagnosed with dementia, depression, anxiety, paranoia or substance abuse and do not know where to turn for help?
  • Are you home-bound and unable to meet regularly with a psychiatrist or counseling therapist?

Central can help. Central’s SOS program supports seniors 60 year and older who are home-bound and struggling with mental health concerns. Our psychiatrist will work side by side with you in your home to manage your symptoms while working closely with the SOS Coordinator to connect you to services for support. Should you feel you would benefit from counseling, our licensed clinical social worker will meet with you in your home weekly or bi-weekly to provide you with counseling support. Our SOS team will help you create a network of community support and provide resources to the care givers in your life. SOS services are available in the Norristown and Abington areas of Pennsylvania.

OASIS Program

OASIS is a partial hospital program tailored to meet the needs of the older adult with behavioral health and co-occurring challenges.  Special focus is placed on both problems arising from the aging process and the wisdom resulting from a multitude of life experiences. The OASIS program aims to implement interventions through various modalities and to maximize and improve an individual’s emotional, behavioral and physical health. In addition, the program works with older adult clients to assist as they develop and restore their resiliency and achieve personal fulfillment. Our goal is to help older adults prevent premature institutionalization by supporting the individual in living as independently as possible within the community.  OASIS utilizes treatment approaches to reduce symptoms and behaviors that are troublesome and distressing for both the individual and the caregiver.  Our program and staff promote a sense of independence, self-reliance and well-being.  We help the individual create an ongoing network of community supports. Our therapeutic groups are designed to meet these goals, increase social interaction and improve the individual’s sense of self-worth and competence.  Additionally, each person is assigned a therapist who develops an individualized plan which is the focus of treatment and is regularly reviewed with the individual.  Each person’s unique treatment plan is also overseen by the OASIS Program psychiatrist, who develops an appropriate medication intervention and maintains a link with involved general medical practitioners.

Treatment at OASIS is addressed in a 6-hour therapeutic day which may be attended from 1 to 3 days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). Group therapy topics include: Personal recovery issues, Grief and loss, Improving depression, Maintaining sobriety and stability, Exercise for the mind, Reminiscing group, Physical wellness, Wellness through art, Social Skills group, Wellness through music, and more!
