Senior Life Solutions
Senior Life Solutions, a department of Pinckneyville Community Hospital, is a program designed to benefit seniors by helping them to learn coping skills to help with many of life's daily challenges. The program's goal is, "to help patients safely return to their optimal style of living." Through therapy, the staff at Senior Life Solutions can partner with the patient to make the future brighter for the patient and his/her loved ones.
Issues affecting seniors are uniquely challenging. Some of these challenges may include the loss of loved ones, difficulty with health or physical ability, moving into a different home or care facility, or even the loss of one's independence. These and other hardships that seniors face during the aging process may contribute to depression or anxiety. Signs and symptoms of anxiety or depression may include: nervousness, loneliness, difficulty concentrating, changes in sleep or appetite, and feelings of hopelessness or helplessness. The proper guidance and regular attention of the experienced professionals at Senior Life Solutions (SLS) can lead to an improved lifestyle as well as better overall health. Along with the patient, family members, and the family physician, team staff members include a psychiatrist, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, a Registered Nurse/Program Director and a Unit Clerk.
Senior Life Solutions provides confidential group, individual, and family therapy as well as medication management for behavioral health diagnosis.
