Growing older has many unique challenges that can affect a person’s mental and emotional well-being. These challenges might include depression, anxiety, and various other mental health disorders but may also have experiences that are more frequently experienced as we grow older, including:
- The loss of loved ones.
- Life transitions such as retirement or moving into supported living communities.
- Changes in physical health and mobility condition.
- Family conflict.
- Finding activities, if needed, that Seniors can begin or continue to do.
- Hoarding issues.
The Lutheran Family Services (LFS) Senior Care Program focuses on helping aging adults address these challenges to live lives of meaning and purpose. These services include:
- Mental Health Counseling
- Medication Management
- Substance Use Counseling
- Community Support
In addition to behavioral health services, LFS offers care and service coordination support to help individuals access the needed services. This support might include finding a medical provider, getting information about public benefits, or finding housing programs, and and other various needs that may arise.
LFS partners with Immanuel Communities in Omaha and Papillion, Nebraska, where we have a mental health counselor who works within Assisted Living and Independent Living Communities, providing mental health support and counseling for community residents.
