Davis County Hospital Announces Senior Life Solutions Partnership
Davis County Hospital is pleased to announce a partnership with Senior Life Solutions. Senior Life Solutions will be located in the Davis County Hospital’s Southeast Medical Clinic located at 505 N Madison, Bloomfield.
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.
Davis County Hospital’s Senior Life Solutions program, an intensive outpatient group therapy 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. Individuals may benefit from the Senior Life Solutions program if they are experiencing any of the following common indicators or triggers:
- 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
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.
“In our 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment, mental health was identified as one of the top needs in Davis County, therefore we are excited about the arrival of Senior Life Solutions to our community,” said Kirby Johnson, CEO of Davis County Hospital. “Senior Life Solutions will be a great asset as it’s unique in providing participants with a different kind of toolbox – one equipped with resources to handle life’s challenges.”
Family members, physicians, or other health professionals can refer individuals to the program. For questions regarding insurance, potential patients can call the dedicated Senior Life Solutions staff.
