Behavioral Health Providers offers specialized therapy for individuals and families seeking help with issues related to the physical and mental effects of the aging process. Areas of concern may include everything from the retirement transition clear through to the end of life.
One of the central issues that the elderly must cope with is loss. People deal with death much more frequently in their senior years. Particularly difficult are the losses of spouse and lifelong friends. Other losses are physical: impairments in hearing, vision, or mobility and worsening of overall health. Many individuals also deal with the loss of independence and, to some degree, dignity.
Some reasons a family or individual may seek therapeutic support for gerontological issues:
Alzheimers, dementia, or other cognitive concerns
Loss of mobility
Difficulty finding satisfaction or fulfillment in daily activities
Feeling useless or purposeless
Loss of spouse, friends, or family
Elder abuse or fraud
Mistreatment in care
Exploitation of financial or physical resources
Difficulty coping with new demands
Transitioning to retirement
Transitioning to other lifestyle changes
