It has been one year since Orchard Hospital brought Senior Life Solutions to our community and its success is measured in the amount of people who are benefitting from the program.

Dedicated to addressing the emotional and behavioral health of adults over the age of 65, the program began with a goal of 10 people in the first phase which was achieved. The program is now into the second phase with another 10 people being added to the schedule of three days per week.

Services of Senior Life Solutions includes providing assistance to individuals suffering from one or more of the following: crying, hopelessness, loneliness, restlessness, sadness, coping with loss, decreased energy, difficulty sleeping, low self-confidence and life transitions.

Opening in December last year, the staff at Senior Life Solutions and Orchard Hospital recognize that the holidays can be an especially tough time for those who are dealing with grief and loss, anxiety and depression and believe quality of life does not have to stop as you get older or during the holidays.

Senior Life Solutions staff includes a board-certified psychiatrist, a licensed therapist, a registered nurse and other trained professionals to ensure you receive the best possible care.

Referrals can come from anyone whether it be by a patient’s physician, a family member, self-referral, or other health care professionals. Call 846-9076 for more information.
