According to the World Health Organization, over 20% of adults over the age of 60 suffer from a mental or neurological disorder.

Grand Lake Health System has opened up "Clear Passage", a geriatric psychiatric center to help with that need. The new 12 bed unit, will help seniors deal with a variety of cognitive impairments and behavioral difficulties.

“What we are finding is that a lot of nursing homes, assisted livings, families, when their family member has any kind of behavioral concerns they are not really sure where to turn to or where to go. That’s were we come into play, anybody can pick up the phone and give us a call and we are more than willing to help find that patient, either their admission here or finding them service that benefit them. Because we know how hard it is to find mental health treatment in rural areas like ours," commented Alyssa Putman, Program Director. 

Putman says Clear Passage will open up and be ready for clients later this month.
