Older Adult Behavioral Health Care

Some adults begin to have challenges with everyday tasks as they age. MaineHealth behavioral health services can help older adults adapt to changes and improve their overall quality of life.

What is older adult behavioral health care?

Older adults may start to lose cognitive, motor, and sensory function as they age. Many older adults have trouble doing things they used to be able to do easily. Older adult behavioral health care can help aging adults cope with changes in their lives, bodies, minds and emotions.
