Senior Life Solutions is an intensive outpatient group therapy program designed to meet the unique needs of adults typically ages 65 and older struggling with symptoms of depression and anxiety that can sometimes be age-related.

Our Senior Life Solutions program is designed to meet the specific needs of hospitals based in rural areas. We’ve successfully partnered with both small and large, for-profit and non-profit, hospitals. Together, we can address the needs of your community and improve the quality of life for your senior patients while providing a financial benefit to your hospital.

Hospital partner management services include:

  • Day-to-day management
  • Telepsychiatry
  • Recruiting psychiatrists, RNs, and therapists
  • Community outreach
  • Ensuring both federal and state compliance
  • Cost report analysis
  • Ongoing mental health training
  • Complete policies and procedures

Aging brings many joys — more time with family and freedom in retirement — but our older years can also bring difficult life transitions, the loss of loved ones, or stress from age-related health concerns.

At Senior Life Solutions, we individualize our patient care plans to meet your patients’ specific needs. Our services include group, individual, or family therapy, along with mental health evaluations, community resources, and after-care planning. If applicable, we will consult your patients’ primary care physicians regarding medication changes. Patients meet up to three times per week with our caring, multidisciplinary team of registered nurses, board-certified psychiatrists, and licensed therapists.

Our program is designed to help individuals experiencing any of the following:

  • Recently experienced a traumatic event
  • Lost a spouse or close family member
  • Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
  • Changes in appetite
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Loss of energy
  • Feelings of sadness or grief lasting more than two weeks
  • Feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness

What is Group Therapy?

What is Group Therapy?

Following an individual assessment, participants meet up to three times per week in a supportive, encouraging group therapy setting. These sessions allow each patient to gain a greater understanding of him or herself and have the opportunity to create relationships with other people who may be facing similar challenges. During group therapy, patients will engage in open conversation guided by a licensed therapist and learn new skills to support their mental health wellness for the remainder of their lives.

“My nursing background is in home health and geriatric care. Therefore, I personally have seen the need for a program like Senior Life Solutions. When this opportunity became available, I knew I had to apply. I have seen so many seniors, who live in his or her own home or live in an assisted living or nursing home, that are alone and are struggling with the loss of a spouse, retirement, primary caregiver, or chronic illness and do not have access or the means to seek help. These individuals have lost his or her zest for life and are unsure of how to move on. I believe the most important thing we provide to our patients is hope. I have heard that word several times not in only our program but other Senior Life Solution programs as well. What an extraordinary thing to be a part of, to provide hope and purpose to an individual who has lost that along life’s way. I am extremely honored to be a part of this program.”
