Senior Health Care You Can Trust
As you or the loved one you’re caring for ages, it’s important to seek specialized medical services for older adults. With a team of doctors and other health care professionals focused on the unique needs of seniors, you can navigate your whole health care with ease and dignity.
At AdventHealth Lake Wales, formerly Lake Wales Medical Center, it’s our privilege to serve seniors and support their caregivers. Our programs offer comprehensive health care for seniors — including preventive, diagnostic, treatment and support services — so older adults can stay healthy and happy.
For All Aspects of Senior Health
- Geriatric Behavioral Health
Most behavioral conditions in older adults are treatable, especially when identified early. For help in identifying and caring for geriatric behavioral concerns, seek guidance from clinical experts who understand seniors’ unique needs.
It may be time to get medical care if you see any of these signs:
- Crying Spells
- Confusion or Memory Loss (Severe Enough to Endanger Oneself or Others)
- Dangerous Behavior (Toward Oneself or Others)
- Hallucinations or Delusions
- Panic Attacks
- Agitation or Irritability
- Poor Appetite or Overeating
- Recent Disregard for Personal Appearance
- Disorganization and Inability to Perform Daily Activities
- Self-Inflicted Wounds
- Social Isolation
- Suicidal Thoughts
AdventHealth’s geriatric care in Lake Wales can help diagnose and treat a wide range of senior behavioral health conditions. Our inpatient care for patients over age 60 includes:
- Adult Psychiatry
- Geriatric Psychiatry
- Addiction Treatment
- Crisis Intervention
- Forensic Psychiatry
- Referral to Community Social Services and Health Care Resources
Through a structured geriatric services therapy program, we provide the support and tools seniors need for recovery. Individual, group and family services are available, depending on a patient’s specific treatment plan. We’ll help you set reasonable behavioral health goals and provide an environment where you and your family can begin to heal.
AdventHealth Lake Wales’ 18-bed, secure inpatient psychiatric facility for seniors with acute behavioral health treatment needs is located at a full-service medical facility. You or your loved one will also have access to consultation by other medical specialists for non-psychiatric medical needs.

Your orthopedics team can help you with issues that seniors commonly face, like osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and bone fractures.
Along with helping heal current issues, we can also help you learn how to prevent future bone conditions.
