Re: Therapist who accepts Medi-Cal and/or Medicare
I recommend LifeLong Medical Care, which provides both primary care and mental health services from a number of sites in Oakland and Berkeley. As a community health center they accept Medi/Medi, and they have excellent expertise with geriatric care. At the least they can provide recommendations. Kristine
Re: Therapist who accepts Medi-Cal and/or Medicare (Jan 2003)
Lifelong (my employer)is a community health clinic which has a clinic in Oakland and one in Berkeley which specialize in geriatrics. We take Medicare & Medi-Cal. Although I am not familiar with the schedules, I believe that both sites have psychiatrists (at least part-time) and other folks who can offer treatment for mental health issues for seniors.
Call 510-704-6010 and ask them for the phone numbers for either the Over 60 Clinic (on Sacramento) or the Foothill site in Oakland.
We have a wonderful, dedicated staff who take excellent care of their patients.
The very best to you & your mother. Depression is tough on everyone, not least of all the family members.
