River View is uniquely qualified to meet the unique needs of dual diagnosis residents, a service few other nursing facilities can offer. Dual diagnosis care provides treatment for mental conditions and physical disorders that occur at the same time. A correct diagnosis is vital and an appropriate individualized plan of care is created by an inter-disciplinary team including psychiatric and medical team specialists. Care may include medical treatment, clinical therapy, rehab, neurobehavioral support, behavioral management, memory care and education.
Dual Diagnosis means:
• a primary medical diagnosis and secondary behavioral issues
• primary psychiatric issues, with possible underlying medical issues that require skilled nursing care
