Transitions in Aging
For older adults, there are many challenges – as well as rewards – that come with aging. The older we get, the more likely we are to experience the loss of a spouse, family, or friends from death. Sometimes the challenge isn’t death, but in keeping our chins up and supporting the ones we love as they experience a physical and mental decline.
Many older adults find that they have difficulties coping with changes in lifestyle. What do I do now that I’m not working? How can I be happy living anywhere except for my house? I’ve been there for so many years!
Memory or Cognitive Impairments
Counseling services may be used by individuals who are dealing with the challenges of dementia, post-traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s or other types of memory loss or cognitive impairments. Therapies can include stimulating games or puzzles that can help slow memory loss and improve cognitive function in addition to more traditional counseling services that improve overall feelings of happiness and well-being.
Counseling can also help with situations that arise at any time of your life. You may need someone to talk to after a traumatic incident such as a house fire or in learning how to heal after a bad relationship.
Whatever the particular change or challenge in life, counseling can help with associated depression, grief, and low self-esteem. Contact us to learn how.
