Aging brings many joys:  grandchildren, more free time in retirement, and wisdom gained over the decades.  But at the same time, our older years can also bring the loss of loved ones, stresses of age-related health concerns, or diminished self-esteem.  Regional Health Services of Howard County is offering a new program with a focus on seniors.  Senior Life Solutionsassists older adults (over the age of 65) in developing life skills that help them cope with the challenges of aging.

Senior Life Solutions’ services are designed to provide assistance to individuals suffering from one or more of the following:

  • Crying
  • Hopelessness
  • Loneliness
  • Restlessness
  • Sadness
  • Coping with loss
  • Decreased energy
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Low self-confidence
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Memory Loss
  • Social withdrawal
  • Deterioration of daily life skills

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.

Senior Life Solutions program referrals may be made by anyone, including a  patient’s physician, family member, or other health care professional, or an individual may self-refer to the program.

If you know of someone that you feel could benefit from this program and for more information, please call 563-547-6650.
