Our Goal is to Help Seniors Maintain Their Quality of Life

Senior Behavioral Health (formerly Phases) is an inpatient service of Dardanelle Regional Medical Center designed for individuals age 65 and older. We assess to determine a treatment plan, schedule daily therapeutic activities and prepare for a smooth transition to either the home or an appropriate setting.

Our Senior Behavioral Health unit includes 10 beds and 4 private rooms. It is located in the medical center for a prompt physician or emergency care. Initial assessments are free and include a pre-admission telephone screening. All patients are admitted by a psychiatrist with a primary care physician, or a hospitalist consulting for any chronic medical condition.

Our individual and group therapy programs involve counseling, music, art, pets, plants, spirituality, relaxation, and recreation. If requested, primary care physicians will receive patient progress reports regularly. If you or a loved one exhibit any of the signs of mental distress, please contact us for a full assessment.
