A clinical program designed to guard against overmedication ensures resident appropriate dosing of Psychiatric Medication and timely administration of gradual dose reductions (GDRs) in collaboration with pharmacists, and primary care attending providers.

If a facility has no access to local talk therapists, Forefront can provide resources to assist residents to transition to their new home in the skilled facility.

Forefront educates facility staff on behavioral health through the process of our treating and supporting residents by having them sit in on care sessions that routinely involve alternative therapies and discussing strategies to help maximize the resident quality of life.

Medication Management

Seniors react differently to medications and clinical. Experience matters when treating geriatric patients taking psychotropic and especially antipsychotic and other mood-stabilizing medications.

Psychotherapy is a critical part of behavioral health particularly in supporting both transition therapy for new residents and alternative therapies during Gradual Dose Reductions (GDRs).

Long-Term Care Information

Foundational to our team is our clinical talent development from recruiting and onboarding through credentialing to quality and compliance audits. Our board-certified psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners have preferred experience with seniors and telehealth. We utilize Joint Commission standards for credentialing and conduct Focus Professional Performance Evaluations (FPPE) and Ongoing Professional Performance Evaluations (OPPE) to ensure initial and ongoing competence. Our reviews ensure accurate documentation and appropriate patient care as well as peer-review process to review and audit the care of our providers.

Forefront will work with local staff to schedule recurring time blocks that work for them and that they can support week to week, month to month. With our integration to Point Click Care electronic records system, Forefront can retrieve patient records so that staff doesn’t need to worry about added work beyond patient scheduling and assistance.
