Are you, or a loved one, 60 years of age or older and struggling with mental health concerns? Central’s SOS Program can help. You may qualify if:

  • you are a Medicare recipient (although other insurances may be accepted)
  • live at home and have a history of serious and persistent mental illness or substance abuse
  • experienced an acute emergence of significant mental health issues (may be depressed, agitated, irrational…)
  • you are home-bound isolated or frail
  • you are feeling suspicious, fearful and unable to seek clinic-based services

Meet the Mental Health Professionals who make up our S.O.S. Team:

  • A Board Certified Psychiatrist who will meet with you in your home to discuss your mental health needs
  • Licensed Clinical Social Worker experienced in the treatment of serious and persistent mental illness and trained in crisis intervention techniques, co-occurring, and in the management of psychiatric emergency situations

The Treatment Outcomes We Work to Accomplish:

  • Reduce depressive symptoms to support aging in place and live a full life
  • Eliminate or postpone the need for long-term institutional placement
  • Resolve acute episodes to eliminate hospital stays or make required hospital stays brief
  • Reduce symptoms while creating a network of community supports
  • Promote a sense of independence, self-reliance and well-being
  • Provide caregiver support and training when needed
