Houston Senior Counseling
we treat seniors
Aging is a natural process that may present challenges for some individuals and their families. Although many adults look forward to moving from middle age to their golden years, it may be difficult for others to adjust to this new phase of life. According to the World Health Organization, approximately 15% of adults aged 60 and over suffer from a mental health disorder. Below are common struggles senior adults face.
Isolation and loneliness
Memory and cognitive decline
Fears of death and dying
Seeking mental health treatment has historically been stigmatized. Now that people are living longer, the stigma of treatment has lessened, and Medicare covers the cost of counseling, older adults are seeking relief from problems they may have carried around for decades.
The support of a therapist or mental health professional may help ease the transition and help seniors manage emotions, find new sources of enjoyment and meaning, and build support systems. Contact The Resilience Center of Houston today.
