Due to the current shelter-in-place order and the design of the program, SLS is being suspended until further notice. We look forward to being able to re-introduce the program at a later date.
Aging brings many joys – grandchildren, retirement, and wisdom gained over the decades. But our older years can also bring the loss of loved ones, stresses of age-related health concerns, and difficult life transitions. SoHum Health’s Senior Life Solutions is an intensive group therapy program designed to meet the needs of individuals over the age of 65 struggling with depression and anxiety often related to aging.
If you or someone you know is experiencing any of the following, we can help:
- Recently experienced a traumatic event
- Loss of spouse or close family member
- Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
- Changes in appetite
- Difficulty sleeping or sleeping too much
- Loss of energy
- Feelings of sadness or grief lasting more than two weeks
- Feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness
Following an individual assessment, group participants meet three times per week in a supportive, encouraging setting. The program staff includes a psychiatrist, social worker, and registered nurse dedicated to the emotional well-being of the seniors in Southern Humboldt.
Depression is not a normal part of growing older. You’re not alone and help is available.
Anyone can refer individuals to this program including family members, physicians, or other health professionals. For more information about Senior Life Solutions, contact our caring and dedicated staff at (707) 922-6321. Or fill out the form below and someone will get in touch with you shortly.
