Philosophy is perfectly right in saying that life must be understood backward. But then one forgets the other clause - that is must be lived forward ---- Soren Kierkegaard - Journal and Paper 1843
I offer psychological services for older adults, their families and care givers primarily in skilled and continuing care settings in which I contract. As with younger adults, a variety of mental health disorders , such as anxiety and depression, affect older adults. These can become more debilitating in a rehab or nursing home setting. Stressors common in late life include physical illness and loss of independence and mobility which significantly affect the individual's sense of well being and their participation in their plan of care.
If your facility is interested in my supporting the mental health needs of your residents, please contact me. Medicare and supplemental insurance generally pay for mental health services. I process all claims, the facility bears no responsibility for claims processing or payment.
