Senior Life Solutions
Aging brings many joys - more time with family and freedom in retirement - but our older years can also bring difficult life transitions including the loss of loved ones and stresses of age-related health concerns.
Republic County Hospital's Senior Life Solutions program, an intensive outpatient group therapy program, is designed to meet the unique needs of older adults over the age of 65, who are struggling with depression and anxiety often related to aging.
Individuals may benefit from the Senior Life Solutions program if they are experiencing any of the following common indicators or triggers:
●Recently experienced a traumatic event
●Loss of a spouse or close family member
●Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
●Changes in appetite
●Loss of energy
●Feelings of sadness or grief lasting more than two weeks
●Feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness
Following an individual assessment, participants meet three times per week in a supportive, encouraging group setting. The program staff includes a board-certified psychiatrist, licensed social workers, a registered nurse, and other professionals dedicated to the emotional well-being of the seniors in our community.
Family members, physicians, or other health professionals can refer individuals to the program.
