Avera Behavioral Health - Caring for Adults & Seniors
The most common reasons adults and seniors seek behavioral health services include:
Safety, Privacy and Social Recreation
Avera Behavioral Health Center provides safe, therapeutic areas for adults and seniors to receive treatment. Each wing also has its own dining room where patients may interact and eat with staff members.
While most of the rooms are private rooms, each wing also has semi-private rooms.
Fitness and Physical Wellness
A fitness center is also available to patients. Studies show that physical activity aids in the healing process. Our fitness facilities include:
- Recumbent bikes
- Weight training machines
- Gym facility
- Outdoor courtyard for exercise and therapeutic recreational activities
Easy Access to Emergency Medical Care
The Avera Behavioral Health Center's senior wing is located close to the skywalk link to the Avera Heart Hospital of South Dakota for quick transport in case further care or an elevated level of medical intervention is necessary.
