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.

Gothenburg Health’s Senior Life Solutions 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 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.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to bring this service to Gothenburg Health and surrounding communities. We feel the services offered are uniquely designed to improve quality of life for our aging population; and this fits perfectly with our mission to provide quality, cost-effective health care services to our service area,” said Program Director, Cassie Hilbers, RN-BSN.

Family members, physicians, or other health professionals can refer individuals to the program.
