          New Leaf Senior Care

New Leaf is a 12-bed unit located within Sycamore Shoals Hospital. New Leaf specializes in providing care for patients 55 and older with general psychiatric disorders.   These disorders include but are not limited to dementia with behavioral disturbances, depression, and bipolar disorders. The treatment team consists of our board certified medical director and psychiatrist, Dr. Patel, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, licensed clinical social workers, licensed clinical therapist, and an activity coordinator.  Together the team and the patients develop an individualized treatment plan with goals and objectives.

The goal is to help the patient return to the highest level of independence. The structured plan consists of individual counseling, group therapy, medication management, nursing services, coordinated activities and family support. Each patient is also seen daily by a medical physician and has access to physical therapy and nutrition consults as needed.


Part of the success of our program is our expectation that patients will take as much responsibility for their treatment as possible. Each activity or therapy is planned for patient benefit, and patient participation is very important.

How can I detect signs of depression in the elderly?

At Mountain States Health Alliance, we believe that how you feel emotionally is as important as how you feel physically.
