Senior Renewal Program Reopening at St. Joseph Health Madison Hospital

Madisonville, TX, February 11, 2021 – St. Joseph Health Madison Hospital has announced the February
23 reopening of its Senior Renewal Program. The Senior Renewal Program, a 55+ outpatient behavioral
health service, offers treatment for older adults who suffer from emotional, behavioral or mental health
disorders such as grief, depression, failing memory, anxiety and changes in overall health — all things
seniors may experience as they transition through late adulthood.

"I’m thrilled that we can safely reopen this much needed service to the community,” said Erin Marietta,
Director of Operations for St. Joseph Health Madison Hospital. “Social Isolation coupled with loss, or
other aging challenges, can be very overwhelming for seniors and it’s important they have access to the
support they need.”

The Senior Renewal Program operates Monday through Friday with patients returning to their homes
each evening. Treatment is supervised by Dr. Darlene McLaughlin who is affiliated with Texas A&M
Health Science Center and provided by a team that includes master level clinicians and mental health
providers. The program serves the counties of Madison, Grimes, Leon and other surrounding counties.

The Senior Renewal Program is currently accepting referrals. If you or a loved one is experiencing
challenges due to aging, please call to receive a free, confidential behavioral health assessment.
Referrals to The Senior Renewal Program may be made by physicians, nurses, social workers, self or
others by calling 936-349-1671.
