Ask Yourself the Following Questions:
Clinical Social Work
Whole Senior Care provides therapy services under Medicare Part B to individuals struggling with anxiety, depression or adjustment disorders. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness techniques are utilized to assist clients in reaching the quality of life they deserve.
These techniques can also be useful for working through anticipatory grief, accepting terminal illness and impending death, resolving life issues, coping with chronic illness and pain and adjusting to the changes that aging presents. For more information about CBT and other forms of psychotherapy that may be used by our therapists click the link below
Other specialty services include:
- couples and family therapy, when appropriate, to provide psychoeducation and support around the primary client's mood and behavior concerns.
- family psychoeducation and counseling around challenging behaviors associated with a mental illness, Alzheimer's disease or other chronic illness that has eroded family dynamics.
- group therapy for grief support, dealing with isolation, movement and drumming (closed groups available for select dates only).
- supporting clients and families in making decisions about medical procedures, end of life care and initiating other difficult conversations.
- EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
- Ketamine assisted psychotherapy
*Whole Senior Care accepts private pay and traditional Medicare plans for counseling and psychotherapy services.
Care Management Services
Whole Senior Care provides care management consultations to assist clients and family members in navigating the long-term care maze and establishing a plan of care to ensure quality of life, regardless of the setting. Some limited ongoing care management is available as needed, but our primary goal is to empower clients and their families to be better equipped to manage care needs independently.
Care management has been defined by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation as "a set of activities intended to improve patient care and reduce the need for medical services by enhancing coordination of care, eliminating duplication, and helping patients and caregivers more effectively manage health conditions."
As providers, we have seen a tremendous need for client and family support in understanding what options and resources are available following a health crisis. Our healthcare system does not offer supportive services to patients on an ongoing basis. Often we are left to process new diagnoses, prognoses, procedures, medications and treatments alone, with little understanding of how they cumulatively impact our health and well-being. The cost of care management services are high and not affordable for most patients. Our goal is to make consultation services available to everyone, regardless of income level, so that patients and their family members are educated about the essential elements of how to access services and community resources, what questions to ask and when, how to have difficult conversations with the people we love to ensure we are honoring their healthcare wishes, and how to ensure their physical and emotional health at home or in long-term care settings.
*Whole Senior Care accepts private pay only (sliding scale available) for care management consultations.
