Senior Services

Heritage Oaks Hospital offers a full continuum of inpatient and outpatient psychiatric care for seniors age 62 and over. Our comprehensive program is designed to treat the complex psychiatric and substance abuse problems of older adults with primary psychiatric disorders including Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar disorder and Schizophrenia.

Patients who are medically stable, cognitively intact, able to participate in and benefit from treatment will gain insight and tools to help restore, maintain and enhance their quality of life.
