GERIATRICS

GERIATRICS

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

Sessions are on a one-on-one basis. Typically, these sessions are on a weekly basis, and usually last between 30-60 minutes in length. A variety of issues can be discussed during a session. We most often see clients for issues taking place in the present, but we can work through traumas and issues of the past as well. It is not always necessary to have an order from a physician to seek this treatment. This varies between each insurance carrier.

FAMILY COUNSELING

Sessions are held with one or more members of a family to work through issues related to a loved one. For example, if a loved one has a mental illness and the family is struggling with how to help them better cope with symptoms. We can see families for a variety of reasons; however, the reason should stem back to the loved one.

GROUP COUNSELING

Sessions are held in a common area and typically have 4 or more people in attendance. Group sessions are designed to help multiple people who are going through something similar or have a common issue or concern. Some examples of this could be: divorce, PTSD, new residents, or recent death of a loved one.

  • Live Well Counseling has filled a missing gap that our residents have been able to benefit from. Many don’t need a psychiatrist, but rather a counselor to help them through a transition in their life caused by loss of a loved one, independence or dealing with a new diagnosis. We are a big proponent in reducing mood altering medications. Live Well Counseling has been there for our residents as a least restrictive approach to what many call ‘behaviors’. We call it symptoms of just being human because life happens.
