Fayette County Memorial Hospital (FCMH) is pleased to announce a partnership
with Senior Life Solutions. Senior Life Solutions will be located in Medical
Arts Building 1, Suite 104 located at 1450 Columbus Avenue.
Aging brings many joys – more time with family and freedom in retirement
– but our older years can also bring difficult life transitions
including the loss of loved ones and stresses of age-related health concerns.
FCMH’s Senior Life Solutions program is an intensive outpatient group
therapy program designed to meet the unique needs of older adults over
the age of 65 struggling with symptoms of depression and anxiety often
related to aging. Individuals may benefit from the Senior Life Solutions
program if they are experiencing any of the following common indicators
- 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
- Feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness
Family members, physicians, or other health professionals can refer individuals
to the program. 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.
“We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Senior Life Solutions
to bring this service to Fayette County Memorial Hospital. We feel the
services offered are uniquely designed to improve quality of life for
our aging population in Fayette County; and this fits perfectly with our
mission to improve the health and wellness of the community,” said
FCMH CEO Mike Diener.
