Integrating Behavioral Health Screening and Treatment Programs in Home Health Care

Integrating Behavioral Health Screening and Treatment Programs in Home Health Care is proudly presented to you by National Association for Home Care & Hospice. Thank you. We hope that you enjoy your course.

Mental health disorders are prevalent in older adults, especially those receiving home health services. Older adults are likely to receive help from a mental health specialist but home care agencies can assist in this process. We will describe a model for providing mental health services to a geriatric population within a home care agency. The program will demonstrate how this agency trained clinicians to screen for depression and other mental health issues while including a psychiatrist in the home care team.

Objectives:

  • Describe how a home care agency can implement a behavioral health program
  • Define the goals of a behavioral program within a home care agency
  • Describe the positive outcomes of incorporating behavioral health in a medical model
