Ellen's Story


Ellen’s lifelong psychological challenges increased with age and a short-stay with us helped her return confidently home. Read what her husband has to say about our SUCCESS behavioral health program and the difference it made in their lives.

Successfully navigating a behavioral or other psychological challenge requires specialized support.

At Potomac Valley our unique SUCCESS℠ program enables people with short- or life-long mental health issues to maximize independence and maintain family relationships.

While skilled nursing is always a component of SUCCESS℠, rehabilitative therapy services can also be incorporated if needed.

An innovative four-step approach drives SUCCESS℠.

  1. We begin with a 'holistic' assessment process, evaluating every single aspect of the medical, psychological, pharmaceutical, nutritional and physical elements that may impact psychological wellbeing.
  2. From this we work with the resident to develop goals that are targeted within an individualized SUCCESS℠ plan.
  3. Support and goal monitoring is carried out by our SUCCESS℠ team. This includes physicians, Nurse Practitioners, psychiatrists, neurologists, consulting pharmacists, psychiatric nurse specialists, social workers, clinical dietitian and others.
  4. Lastly we facilitate a successful transition to a place of higher independence.

Please reach out to us if you are a family member or friend of someone needing care.
