The Eldercare Method

Male and female doctors working on reports in medical office.

The Eldercare Method is a systematic process of behavioral health consultation designed for use within long term care settings. It is based upon a clinical model of geriatric behavioral health care developed by a psychologist, Kelly O’Shea Carney, PhD, CMC. The Eldercare Method, which is intended to provide services that extend beyond traditional behavioral health services, is predicated upon the logic of offering “wrap around” care to elders within long term care. The primary goal of the interventions is to foster the well being and highest level of function among frail elders by providing support, education and guidance to the professional caregivers who care for these older adults within long term care settings.
