Behavioral Health Senior Program 

The Baylor Behavioral Health Senior Program at Baylor Garland provides short-term (7–14 days) inpatient services for adults age 65+ who are experiencing a mental health crisis. Our skilled team works in tandem with Baylor Garland hospital services to ensure both mental and physical health needs are addressed simultaneously and cohesively.

The program is recovery-centered in its approach and encourages individuals to reconnect with their hopes and personal motivations. The advanced psychiatric and medical care offered is based on a combination of individual, group and family therapy, including occupational therapy and education.
