Counseling for Older Adults/Seniors
Many older adults seek the professionalism of a compassionate counselor who is
able to help them with current life adjustments; life transitions; and issues such as
stress, anxiety, depression, or family concerns, among others. Counseling can
help older adults who may have difficulty with the transitions of aging to manage
their emotions, find new sources of enjoyment and meaning, and find new
support systems. For seniors, counseling can help with addressing concerns about
a spouse who is ill or has dementia, as well as issues of whether to downsize and
move, how to find services, or handling chronic illness or grief or loss.
Alzeimer's & Dementia Support
Individual counseling can also assist family members who may be caretakers of
their elder relatives, as it can assist them in dealing with their
emotions, communication issues—which may be especially helpful if an elder has
some form of dementia.
For family members, this might be how to deal with an
aging parent, how to talk to siblings, how to manage the stress of caregiving. Or it
might be getting some help in knowing about care and what is coming down the
road so that you can be prepared with a plan about care, housing, and your own
life. Jenny holds specialized training in Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care.
