Senior Life Solutions Program Receives National Recognition

December 13, 2019

Manning Regional Healthcare Center was recently notified that its Senior Life Solutions program was chosen as a STAR training site by Psychiatric Medicare Care (PMC), one of the largest mental health management companies within rural hospitals across the United States. Overall, PMC manages Senior Life Solutions programs at more than 85 locations nationwide.

MRHC now holds the distinction of being one of just 10 STAR training sites for Senior Life Solutions staff across the country selected by PMC.

“Being chosen as a training site is a result of the outstanding leadership, administration and compassionate care provided by our fantastic Senior Life Solutions staff at MRHC,” said Linn Block, RN, BSN, MHA, Chief Executive Officer at MRHC. “They love their job and go out of their way to help support and genuinely care for their clients.”

MRHC’s Senior Life Solutions is an intensive outpatient group counseling program designed to meet the unique needs of older adults over the age of 65 who are struggling with depression and anxiety often related to aging. Following an individual assessment, participants meet three times per week in a supportive, encouraging group setting.

Senior Life Solutions STAR training sites were chosen by PMC as a result of their time of service with the company, their ability to uphold PMC’s 3Cs of Care, Compliance, and Community, and their ability to remain accountable and kind not only in training new staff but in their daily work serving their communities.  STAR training sites must have scored a 90% or higher on their last three corporate clinical audits and the last audit score must be 95% or higher.

Current STAR training sites for the Senior Life Solutions program now include: Coquille, OR; El Dorado Springs, MO; Holton, KS; Oneonta, AL; Philippi, WV; Cambridge, NE; Hawarden, IA; Manning, IA; Standish, MI and Trenton, MO.
