Depression in Geriatric Population
Map to Inspirations
Inspirations, in association with Eureka Springs Hospital, is an intensive outpatient psychiatric service for senior citizens of our community and the surrounding areas.
Inspirations operates on one simple promise: We promote expert intervention to improve and maintain independent living in older adulthood.
Inspirations is not to be confused with ‘Adult Daycare.’ Inspirations is much more than that. Inspirations is the place for you to overcome the fear of change, and help you learn how to adapt to new challenges and changes in your life. Inspirations is a place to come to and learn how to have a good day again.
Everyone wants to feel enthusiasm, resilience, and to experience a rejuvenation of good mental and good physical health in their Golden Years. As one ages and independence declines, a person may gradually lose the ability to cope with life. The Inspirations program was therefore designed to assist these individuals in learning to cope and continue to enjoy life.
Adults 55 years of age and older can add the Inspirations program to their weekly routine and learn strategies to get their energy back, learn how to eat a healthy diet, learn the benefits of regular daily exercise, and maintain good mental health. At Inspirations, we explore how they can access modern technology, allowing participants to overcome the fear of computers and smartphones, to stay in touch with friends and family, and to feel like a part of this vast interconnected world we live in again.
