Bayshore Medical Center provides a healing atmosphere for the unique needs of seniors through its Senior Solutions program.
Our 22-bed unit works to maximize the mental and physical health of seniors by identifying whether issues are signs of aging, stress or correctable medical problems.
For adults 65 and older. The program provides 24-hour intensive inpatient treatment. Working together, the medical director, nurses, social workers, occupational therapist, family and primary care doctor help you or your senior find mental and physical health.
