Mental Health Counseling
Everyone deserves access to mental health counseling, even individuals whose limited mobility prevents them from leaving home. Too often, the elderly, disabled, or their caregivers are unable to travel to a therapist’s office. In keeping with the mission that everyone should have access to the mental health care they need, ISS provides clients with in-home counseling services. We offer individual, family and couples counseling. The following is a brief overview of the specific counseling services we offer.
Counseling for Seniors
As with every stage in life, growing older brings unique challenges. The elderly are likely to suffer from a number of medical conditions and changes in social environment that can adversely impact their daily lives. Older adults may be needlessly suffering from the emotional distress that comes with later life issues such as depression and anxiety. ISS understands these issues and works collaboratively with family members and long-term care professionals to provide mental health care to the elderly. Through counseling, ISS therapists introduce strategies that help seniors alleviate stress and develop positive coping skills. Whether they are adjusting to life changes, dealing with the passing of a loved one, or experiencing distress from cognitive decline and illness, ISS helps clients find enjoyment and increased quality of life.
Counseling for Caregivers
Whether the caregiver is a spouse, child, grandchild, parent or friend, looking after a loved one can bring great rewards as well as unexpected stresses. In many instances, caregivers put their own needs second to the needs of an aging or disabled partner, parent or friend. Our counseling services address the specific issues that arise from taking care of another person. ISS offers clients in-home counseling, education, and training to help them alleviate stress, manage care, and develop strategies for coping with the unique challenges of caregiving. Through our services, ISS works with clients to reduce stress and improve quality of life.
Counseling for the Disabled
Disabled persons who suffer from limited mobility are prone to a number of medical complications. In addition to these challenges, a disabled person may also be suffering from mental health issues that arise from social isolation and adjustments to change. Hidden depression, anxiety and other stresses can negatively impact a disabled person’s daily life. Working in collaboration with family and long-term care professionals, ISS therapists introduce strategies that encourage productive coping skills that help ameliorate emotional distress. With counseling, ISS helps clients find renewed joy in everyday life.
