Community Invited to Senior Life Solutions Program Open House
Community members are invited to learn more about Senior Life Solutions, an outpatient group therapy program designed for adults ages 65 and older struggling with depression and anxiety, during an open house this spring. The event will be held on Wednesday, May 29, from 3 to 6 p.m., at Senior Life Solutions, located in the former MidMichigan Urgent Care location, on the campus of MidMichigan Medical Center – Gladwin, 609 Quarter Street.
“We are very excited to share information about what the program offers and meet members of our community,” said Kimberly Garrow, program director, Senior Life Solutions. “Our team is committed to helping move our patients toward wellness. This event is the perfect opportunity for anyone interested in Senior Life Solutions to come and see what the program has to offer and meet the staff.”
During the open house, guests will have the opportunity to tour the program facility and ask questions while enjoying light refreshments.
The Senior Life Solutions program helps provide the tools older adults need to cope with depression and anxiety often related to aging. Following an individual assessment, participants meet three times per week in a supportive, encouraging group setting. The program staff includes a board-certified psychiatrist, licensed social workers, a registered nurse, and other professionals dedicated to the emotional well-being of the seniors in our community.
Individuals may benefit from the Senior Life Solutions program if they are experiencing any of the following common indicators or triggers, such as: recently experienced a traumatic event, lost a spouse or close family member, loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities, changes in appetite, difficulty sleeping, loss of energy, feelings of sadness or grief lasting more than two weeks, and/or feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness.
Family members, physicians, or other health professionals can refer individuals to the program. Those interested in more information on MidMichigan’s Senior Life Solutions program in Gladwin may call (989) 246-6332.
