At Texas Care, we address disorders that include dementia, depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, and late-life schizophrenia. With detailed, ever evolving, specialized training in the special physical, emotional, and social needs of older adults, we develop comprehensive approaches to diagnosis and treatment. Such care includes listening and responding to the concerns of the older adult, helping families, and when necessary, working with other health care professionals in a continuum of care to develop effective approaches to treatment.

What is geriatric mental health care?
Geriatric mental health care can consider changes in emotions, behavior, memory and other cognitive abilities. People may start to lose cognitive, motor, and sensory function as they age. They may begin to have challenges with everyday tasks. Many older people have trouble doing things they used to be able to do easily.
Depression and geriatric mental health care
Older people can have depression as they experience life changes such as illness, decline in function and independence, and death of a partner. Geriatric mental health focuses on helping people understand and better cope with life’s challenges during the aging process.
