Elder Counseling

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for elders and their caregivers.

We help the client when:

  • Grieving the loss of a loved one
  • Experiencing feelings of depression, anxiety, abandonment or recurrent agitation
  • Unresolved life issues and conflicts cause distress

We help the family caregiver:

  • With persistent feelings of guilt or anger
  • Cope with changes in their relative
  • Manage when stress is adversely affecting marriage

Services

Our services include individual, marital or family counseling provided by professional psychotherapists offered in the clients’ homes. We provide assessment and consultation when elders are having difficulty adjusting to life transitions.

Funders

If the elder client is seen in our Family Mental Health Clinic in our Binghamton office, we also accept Medicaid.
