Senior Life Solutions
Aging brings many joys – more time with family and freedom in retirement
– but our older years can also bring difficult life transitions
including the loss of loved ones and stress from age-related health concerns.
Kirby’s Senior Life Solutions is an intensive outpatient group therapy
program designed to meet the unique needs of older adults typically ages
65 and older struggling with symptoms of depression and anxiety often
related to aging.
If you or someone you know are in crisis, seek help immediately.
