AbbeHealth, the newest affiliate of UnityPoint Health – Cedar Rapids, provides mental health and aging services that assist individuals to achieve optimal success.
AbbeHealth provides these services to more than 17,000 adults and children each year.
The partnership between AbbeHealth and UnityPoint Health means we work together to better serve the medical, behavioral health and aging service needs of patients, clients and local communities. Many behavioral health patients have significant medical health issues that affect their treatment outcomes. Working together and looking at the whole patient will lead to better patient outcomes.
There are five major services at AbbeHealth and today we are highlighting Aging Services.
Aging Services enhances the lives of older adults by providing services and resources to assist them in remaining independent. Serving Linn, Benton, Johnson and Jones counties, Aging Services offers a continuum of services including healthy aging programs, in home services, adult day health services and more.
Witwer Healthy Aging Programs have been serving Linn County residents since 1982.
The goal of programming is to support older adults by providing life-long learning, leisure and activities, evidence-based health education, spirituality, technology and wellness.
In Home Services are offered to older adults who wish to continue living in their homes. Respite for caregivers, transportation, home maintenance, case management, elder abuse intervention and more are available under In Home Services.
Adult Day Health Services provide a cheerful and nurturing environment designed specifically to provide assistance and opportunities to challenged individuals age 18 and over. Nursing and personal care services, social activities, art and computer labs, and educational programs make this a home away from home.
