Pain Management

Chronic pains is present in 75-85% of the elderly population in care facilities (Ferrell, Ferrell, & Osterweil, 1990; Tsang et al., 2008). Having chronic pain greatly increases the potential for the development of depression, anxiety, decreased mobility, and sleep problems. These services combine research-based behavioral and psychological interventions to help a patient gain mastery over their pain, and reduce dependency on the healthcare system.

Cognitive Rehabilitation

After cognitive strengths and areas of improvement are identified with assessment, we can then implement specific cognitive exercises to improve attention, processing speed, mental alertness, memory and problem solving. These exercises can also prevent a decline of cognitive abilities during the aging process.

Group Therapy

Psychotherapy Sessions with Patient and Family:

These sessions invite a family member or members into the process of learning about symptoms and improving communication. Caring for an ill family member causes tremendous strain on the entire family system. These sessions can improve caregiver understanding of certain
psychological or cognitive conditions, assist with identifying more effective ways of responding to the patient, and assist with improving both caregivers’ and patient’s adjustment to physical difficulties and transition.
