Mental Health Care
Our program gives new hope to residents.
At Chelsea Senior Living, residents of our senior living community in East Brunswick New Jersey can enjoy a comfortable lifestyle, with a choice of interesting activities and a full range of services to help them get the most out of life. Unfortunately, aging can also bring new stresses into our lives that make it difficult to enjoy these “golden years.” Health problems, reduced mobility, the loss of loved ones, and other stressful events can take a toll on our emotional and behavioral health. Some older adults may experience feelings of anxiety, depression and isolation as a result. With the right specialized care and supportive environment, however, it is possible to feel well and enjoy life again.
The Crossings Program
Crossings Mental Health Program offers new hope and expert care to seniors with behavioral and emotional issues such as depression, grief, isolation, and panic attacks. Our innovative program combines the amenities and benefits of our gracious assisted living residence with the specialized care of our skilled behavioral health clinical team. This multidisciplinary team works together with our Crossings residents and their families to address their unique needs and promote the highest level of independence and wellness possible…in a supportive environment with all the comforts of home.
Crossings offers a unique structured daily therapeutic program that includes physical exercise, counseling, and coping skills training, with the guidance and assistance of our highly trained, caring staff. Their focus is to help each resident function at the highest level possible and achieve the optimum quality of life. They also provide ongoing support to each resident’s family and loved ones to help alleviate their own anxiety and stress.
Individual Needs, Customized Treatment
The highly structured program at Crossings is designed to address the overall wellness of each resident, rather than treating specific, isolated problems. Our behavioral health clinical team evaluates each resident as an individual, focusing on their specific needs, strengths and weaknesses. They can then develop a daily customized program that includes activities to meet each resident’s unique physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs.
Residents receive the specific treatment they need while enjoying the privacy and comfort of a private or semiprivate apartment, furnished with their treasured possessions and personal items. They also benefit from The Chelsea’s full range of senior living community amenities and assisted living services, as well as the compassionate care of our dedicated staff.
