Mental stability is key to a better quality of life.
Heritage Lane Behavioral Assisted Living employs a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). Their primary role and responsibility is to be present in the community for staff and to address specific resident needs as it relates to their scope of practice.
The PMHNP is the individual in our community who manages all mental health medications and prescribes those medications as needed. Rather than have a resident leaving the community for a visit to a mental health clinic, the resident can see the practitioner on site and have their medications or other concerns addressed immediately.
In addition, residents can set appointments with our practitioners as needed and discuss challenges or accomplishments. They may negotiate or modify their plan of action in agreement with their treating practitioner.
