Mental health and well-being is just as important in older age as at any other time of life. Older adults and seniors are at risk of developing depression, anxiety or substance abuse due to decline in functional ability, reduced mobility, chronic pain, health problems, loss of independence, financial concerns, loneliness, social isolation or bereavement.

Since older adults and seniors are more likely to report physical symptoms than psychiatric complaints, proper diagnosis and treatment of mental health concerns in elder adults can be difficult. Don’t hesitate to schedule an assessment with one of our trained therapist’s if you or a loved one is experiencing problems with any of the following:

  • Difficulty with decision-making, concentration or memory loss
  • Feelings of worthlessness, helplessness or excess guilt
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Decrease or increase in appetite
  • Changes in sleep, unexplained fatigue or loss of energy
  • Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
