The process of aging can be a difficult one for some people. Many have anxiety about memory loss, hearing loss, or loss of mobility and function. It can be difficult for some to adjust to a new lifestyle, one with more care and assistance. Our therapists work with those struggling with the aging process to make sure that they transition smoothly, and are given ways to deal with stressful and difficult situations. Our goal is to make sure you get the help you need in order to make this transitioning time easier and more manageable.
Our therapists can work with you individually, or with your family as well, to discuss options for helping during this time. We will give you tools to mitigate stress or fear when it comes to difficult situations. As we work with you closely, we want to make sure you achieve your personal goals, however big or small they may be.
Neurological disorders, like dementia, are quite common in an aging population, and can be quite scary. Not remembering an event can cause lack of self-esteem and anxiety.

Receiving therapy can lead to better communication within the family, as well as a decrease in anxiety about these issues.

As people age, their behaviors may change. This can be scary for not only the aging individual, but also their family.

Our therapists will work with you to make sure there are options for coping and working through your depression, leading to a more fulfilling life.

It’s important to understand the issues surrounding these thoughts and what might be triggering them.
