Dr. Tafur Generations Program for Seniors

Dr. Tafur Generations Program for Seniors

The Dr. Tafur Generations Program was developed specifically for patients ages 55 and older who need an acute inpatient setting to treat severe disorders such as depression, suicidal thoughts, psychosis, and destructive behavior. Our team will help the senior patient to cope with the source(s) of the problem and guide them through the development and implementation of an individualized treatment plan.

The Generations program is located on the third floor of Mountain Vista Medical Center. In addition to care for geriatric psychiatry patients, this recently remodeled nursing unit provides a full range of medical care to help patients get back to their highest level of physical, mental, social, and spiritual well being.

Visiting Hours are on Sundays from 2-3 p.m. for rooms 349-358 and from 3-4 p.m for rooms 359-368 unless otherwise posted at the Unit's entrance.
