Outpatient Therapy Program Opens in Olathe

St. Anthony’s Senior Care Hospital in Olathe, Kansas has a brand-new outpatient program. The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is an outpatient group and individual therapy program being offered to seniors ages 65 and older. This program is ideal for people who are medically stable but experiencing behavioral health symptoms that can be managed without hospitalization. These symptoms include:

  • Increased Depression

  • Increased Anxiety

  • Experiencing Grief and/or Loss

  • Starting to experience cognitive decline that is causing behavioral changes

  • Psychosis

  • Increased symptoms of a diagnosed personality disorder

The Partial Hospitalization Program provides a safe, structured environment to allow the patient the opportunity to explore and develop coping skills, to enhance a sense of personal identity and to increase the patient’s self-esteem and personal values. This is done through intensive therapy in a group setting and individually. Participants have the opportunity to meet with a psychiatrist or psychiatric practitioner to discuss medication. This is a great alternative to inpatient therapy.
