Anyone can call the Restorative Care Unit at Sumner Regional Medical Center. Referrals may be made by physicians, health care professionals, friends, or family. A free confidential assessment can be scheduled at the hospital or in a physician's office. All admissions are reviewed with, ordered, directed, and supervised by a licensed psychiatrist.
If a patient's assessment determines that a stay at the Restorative Care Unit would be beneficial, our representative meets with the patient and family members to discuss a treatment program. The program is individually tailored to the needs of the patient, and may include evaluation of medications to determine their effect on cognition, group therapy, teaching of coping skills, and dealing with anxiety issues.
In the Restorative Care Unit at Sumner Regional Medical Center, we are working to reverse that trend.
