SENIOR LIFE SOLUTIONS® PROGRAM
At Callaway District Hospital, we recognize that many adults over the age of 65 are struggling with the diverse changes that inevitably come with aging. We want to help you or your loved one be able to cope with these changes in a healthy way.
Our Senior Life Solutions® program is an intensive outpatient counseling program that is designed to meet the needs and improve the quality of life of older adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, and loneliness. If this sounds like something that might be of help or interest to you, we would love to hear from you!
Who Does This Program Best Serve
If you or someone you know has recently experienced any of the following,
this program could be right for you:
- The loss of a spouse or close family member or friend
- The loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
- Changes in appetite
- Difficulty sleeping or changes in sleep patterns
- Loss of energy
- Feelings of sadness or grief lasting more than two weeks
- Feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness
- Recently experienced a traumatic event
How It Works
Following an individual assessment, our Senior Life Solutions program participants will meet together in a group therapy setting up to three times a week. In this safe and nurturing environment, they will talk with others who are facing similar challenges with the support of our program staff. It’s our hope that each participant will form new relationships, gain a better understanding of themselves, and learn new skills to help them cope with whatever obstacles they are currently facing. For those who are unable to travel to a group meeting, we also provide telehealth services to seniors from the comfort of their own homes.
Our Trained Staff
Our program staff includes a board-certified psychiatrist, a licensed social worker, a registered nurse, and other trained professionals who are dedicated to ensuring each participant receives quality, personalized care.
Anyone can refer a participant to our Senior Life Solutions program, including the participant’s physician, a family member or friend, the participant themself, or any other healthcare professional.
