Intermountain Hospital offers our Community Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) to senior patients. It is a structured, therapeutic program that assists in transitioning patients from an inpatient hospital setting to a more independent life in the community. The program is designed to increase and maintain the therapeutic gains individuals have made as patients in the hospital. It may also help prevent the need for future hospitalizations. Community PHP is tailored to meet each individual’s needs and provides direction and tools that each participant can use in their daily lives.
Community PHP benefits those with severe and persistent psychiatric illness. Our goal is to assist individuals who have previously struggled with sustaining therapeutic gains achieved in an inpatient setting. Participants attend the program five days per week.
With four therapeutic groups daily, Community PHP is tailored to fit individual needs. Led by Masters’ level therapists and registered nurses, therapeutic group curriculum includes:
