We take care of seniors cognitive challenges, especially those with complex health issues

For most individuals in the U.S., accessing mental health care is a struggle, but older adults may have it worst of all. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), mental health is essential to overall health and well-being, so it must be recognized and treated in all Americans, including older adults, with the same urgency as physical health.

Due to stigma, misinformation, and false beliefs about aging, seniors frequently go without adequate care for depression, dementia and the early stages of Alzheimer’s. Often family members and friends are either far away or have passed away.

By following patients from one setting to the next, we are in the best position to minimize wasteful and unnecessary admissions, ER visits, and medication errors, capable of choosing the least restrictive level of care for each.

Forefront Telecare recognizes addressing mental health | behavioral health issues in older populations requires paying more attention. That is just one reason we ‘follow the patient’ to provide a continuum of care for all seniors. Seniors connect with their Forefront clinician, knowing that we work towards outcomes and their quality of life.

The Human Connection

The Human Connection

Older adults with mental and behavioral health issues, such as depression, visit their doctor and the emergency room more often, use more medication, incur higher outpatient charges, and stay longer in the hospital. According to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), depression is not a normal part of growing older.

That is why the Forefront Human Connection during all care points for seniors is part of our personalized approach to staying with them as long as they need our expert clinicians.

Whether you age at home or in Long Term Care, seniors can connect with our Forefront providers through our secure telecare platform and our promise to follow you from a facility to home or even a hospital if required.

Just as your caregivers and nurses provide the human touch, our clinicians have the experience to match the problems you face and the emotional/behavioral care your patient needs.
