Gundersen Palmer Senior Life Solutions
Gundersen Palmer's Senior Life Solutions program, an intensive outpatient group counseling program, is designed to meet the unique needs of older adults over the age of 65 struggling with depression and anxiety often related to aging.
If you or someone you know has recently experienced any of the following, this program might be right for you.
- Recently experienced a traumatic event
- Lost a spouse or close family member
- Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
- Changes in appetite
- Difficulty sleeping or changes in sleep patterns
- Loss of energy
- Feelings of sadness or grief lasting more than two weeks
- Feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness
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.
Family members, physicians, or other health professionals can refer individuals to the program.
If you know of someone that you feel could benefit from this program and for more information, please call (563) 422-9722.
Senior Life Solutions is a service of Gundersen Palmer Lutheran Hospital and Clinics so hospital co-pays may apply.
