Box Butte General Hospital is pleased to announce a partnership with Senior Life Solutions. Senior Life Solutions will be located at 2307 Box Butte Avenue on the BBGH campus, and will accept patients beginning Monday, July 20.
Box Butte General Hospital’s Senior Life Solutions is an intensive outpatient group therapy program designed to meet the unique needs of senior adults struggling with symptoms of depression and anxiety, stress from age-related health concerns, or difficult life transitions such as the loss of a loved one. Individuals may benefit from the Senior Life Solutions program if they are experiencing any of the following common indicators or triggers of depression and anxiety:
- 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, patients meet up to 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 healthcare professionals dedicated to the emotional well-being of the seniors in our community.
Senior Life Solutions Program Director, Denasha Schmunk, RN, said, “The addition of Senior Life Solutions to our community will definitely have a positive impact in the lives of our aging population, and has been a much needed addition to the services offered at Box Butte General Hospital.”
Referrals to the program can be made by anyone, including a patient’s physician, family member, the patient, or another healthcare professional.
