Our Mission

Senior PsychCare (SPC) was founded by Dr. Leo Borrell, who has been a leader in innovative care for stress and age-related problems, both locally in Houston, Texas and nationally. He founded West Oaks Hospital in the 1970's and Stafford Meadows Substance Abuse Treatment Center in the 1980's. He believes the advances in mental healthcare can be of substantial benefit to the number of aging "baby boomers".

Early diagnosis, treatment, family, social support and understanding can prevent, control, minimize and reverse the number of medical, mental and adjustment problems that arise in elderly persons, resulting in disturbed behavior or deterioration. As a physician and specialized psychiatrist, Dr. Borrell has collaborated throughout his career with hospital staff, families and primary care physicians.

He has made a significant contribution to the community through his teaching and learning through his involvement at the University of Texas Medical School and Baylor College of Medicine. In his practice, he has always collaborated with primary care physicians and specialists.

SPC is complimented and enhanced by the broad range of experience and expert mental health knowledge available in geriatric psychiatry of our staff and resources. Therefore, it is our intent and pledge to make available the state-of-the-art in science and psychiatry to senior's families and caregivers. We will provide compassionate service, care and treatment for the elderly's emotional, social and physical well-being. Senior Psychiatric Connection has experience in psychiatric care in nursing homes and assisted living, as well as in diverse outpatient and hospital settings.

SPC provides evaluations, psychiatric management and mental health services independently, as well as in collaboration with, other mental health programs and professionals. This arrangement provides the opportunity to work with other groups who provide mental health services and primary care, as well as opportunity for integration and collaboration when the nursing staff or family sees the need for more collaboration or increased intensity of comprehensive services. This flexibility avoids the fragmentation that often occurs when the professionals are solo practitioners who lack the resources of a comprehensive team of medical health specialists.
