Exclusive Continuum of Care for Older Adults

As people age, they face a multitude of personal and health related issues. Sometimes this results in depression or a combination of physical and emotional states that both need to be addressed by physicians and experts in the field. Provo Canyon Behavioral Hospital offers a variety of programs tailored to the needs of older adults, and we specialize in Dementia and Alzheimer’s care.
