Diagnostic Evaluation

to assess the psychosocial well-being of the resident in order to begin the diagnostic process and make decisions regarding an optimal treatment plan to enhance quality of life. This would include chart review, face-to-face interview with client, and consultation with facility staff and family members to review their pertinent observations and concerns.

Individual Psychotherapy

uses a variety of techniques to target the individual’s mental health needs. Psychotherapy has been shown to produce large beneficial effects across diverse mental conditions, age groups, and settings. For the older adult population in particular, research has shown that not only can psychotherapy reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression and other emotional challenges, but also protects against cognitive decline. Achieving and maintaining optimal independence and quality of life is the ultimate goal of every therapy care plan..


Group Psychotherapy

to provide support for multiple residents who are having similar psychological issues such as physical disability, difficulty transitioning to a new community, bereavement and other experiences of loss that are a shared experience of aging. Group therapy enables individuals to benefit from exchange of ideas and the knowledge that others are experiencing similar problems.

Family Therapy

provides family members a forum that encourages open and satisfying communication. Together with the therapist, family members explore more such topics as: healthy ways of communicating, emotional acceptance, relationship strengthening, and conflict resolution, past trauma and grief recovery.

An increase in resident satisfaction; when the sources of problems are explored and identified and the proper, most effective treatments applied, resident’s mood improves, engagement increases, negative behaviors decline, and independence is fostered.
Clinicians are afforded ongoing professional development opportunities in order to maintain high standards and continue to provide state of the art quality care.

A potential increase in facility referrals; seniors and their families are becoming better informed, more psychologically savvy, and more likely to have had some contact with psychotherapy. This gives them an awareness of the potential benefits of these adjunct services and is reflected in the overall ambiance and appeal of the community.
A comprehensive range of services to Senior Living Facilities for residents whose adjustment is affected by psychological, behavioral and cognitive difficulties. Current research supports the prevalence of positive outcomes for geriatric populations with the use of psychotherapeutic interventions. This effectiveness is maintained across use of various techniques, and applied to multiple conditions.

PERSONAL BENEFITS

We each face daily challenges specific to our stage of life. Most older adults experience age-related issues that impact on physical and psychological well-being, and often affect self-esteem, interest in social engagement, and one's full range of emotional and mental capacities. Senior Living Communities are designed to counteract these problems by offering life-enhancing supplemental activities that address these problems. However, residents can be difficult to engage in all the senior living facility has to offer if they are struggling with psychological and behavioral problems. A trained professional is able to discover the root of such resistance, and can then help enable the resident to take full advantage of the opportunities being offered.
