Therapy for Geriatric Issues – You’re Never Too Old for Therapy
Aging is not for the faint of heart. While some people approach their senior years eagerly, relishing the thought of retirement and spoiling grandchildren, others may have a hard time accepting the passage of time. It can be challenging for many to deal with medical conditions and limited mobility, find enjoyable, meaningful activities, and reconcile with the grief of losing loved ones and their own mortality.
Therapy Can be a Great Help
Therapy can be a powerful transformative tool for people of all ages. As with all people, therapy can help older adults learn to manage their emotions so they can find new meaning and purpose in their Golden years.
Speaking with a therapist can also assist people in working through grief as friends and family pass on. It can also be a tremendous help to speak to someone about the fear of their own mortality.
But this is really only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the numerous benefits of therapy. For instance, we have some older clients who are still dealing with self-esteem issues. We’d like to think the older we get the more we accept and love ourselves. Some of our clients have been able to finally break free of that critical voice inside themselves to live a fuller and more satisfying life.
Some of our clients use our sessions to build their confidence. Whether it’s putting themself “back out there” to find a new romance or being able to speak up to their well-intentioned family members who think they know what’s best, we work together to build the confidence they have perhaps lacked for many, many years.
