Mental Health at Home

Simms is the area’s leading agency in behavioral home health. Our nurses, physical therapits, and nursing assistants bring extensive experience in mental health. They help patients and their families manage mental health challenges more successfully. This can occur both when the mental health diagnosis is the primary diagnosis in the plan of care and when the mental health challenge is a complication in a medical home health plan of care. Our experience also includes behavior management for adults with a mental disorder compounded by a criminal offense or a risk of criminal activity. The mental diagnoses, conditions, and symptoms we help with include:

  • Alzheimer’s
  • Dementia
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Severe phobias
  • Depression
  • Severe anxiety
  • Obsessive compulsive disorders
  • Delusions and hallucinations
  • Schizophrenia
  • And other psychotic and non-psychotic illnesses
