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 stresses of age-related health concerns.





Senior Life Solutions


Aging brings a variety of life changes. Some welcome, some not. One change that is not a normal part of the aging process is depression or anxiety.

Ray County Memorial’s Senior Life Solutions is an intensive outpatient group therapy program designed to meet the unique needs of individuals typically 65 and older experiencing depression and/or anxiety related to life changes that are often associated with aging.

Feeling down every once in a while is a normal part of life, but if these feelings last a few weeks or months, you may be dealing with something more serious. If you or someone you know has experienced any of the following, this program might be right for you.

  • Anxiety
  • Changes in appetite
  • Depression
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Feelings of sadness or grief lasting more than two weeks
  • Feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness
  • Lost a spouse or close family member
  • Loss of energy
  • Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
  • Recently experienced a traumatic event

  • Following an individual assessment, participants meet up to three times per week in a supportive, encouraging group setting.
    The program staff includes a board-certified psychiatrist, licensed therapists, a registered nurse, and other professionals dedicated to the emotional well-being of the seniors in our community.

    Family members, physicians, or other health professionals can refer individuals to the program.
