Senior Perspectives

As we grow older, we all experience unique changes. These changes may include the loss of a spouse, family members, or friends. We may experience physical decline, loss of mobility, or independence. These changes can often become overwhelming, leading to more serious emotional health issues. Too many times emotional health of seniors is overlooked and its impact on physical healing and independence. The Medical Center at Franklin recognizes the unique needs of senior adults and the importance of their overall well being.

Senior Perspectives is an outpatient counseling program for those 60 years of age and older. Through a combination of group, individual, and family therapy, nursing education and medication management, participants gain insight into their struggles and learn effective ways of coping.

The outpatient option allows seniors to receive an intensive level of treatment without the high cost or inconvenience of hospitalization. Senior Perspectives is available for older adults living within a 30 mile radius of Simpson County. Transportation (handicap accessible) is coordinated by Senior Perspective's staff.

For those who may benefit from our services, a complimentary confidential assessment can be scheduled. This free consultation will be conducted by a qualified mental health professional at your convenience and in your living environment.
