Every season of life brings joy and pain. During the latter season of life, it can sometimes be hard to see past the common feelings of loneliness, sadness or worry. Often these feelings are a result of decreasing independence, increasing medical complexities, loss or not having family nearby. Life transitions in this season have major impacts on a person as well. Often people are faced with the need to move out of their home or allow a caregiver to move into their home, both scenarios can be very challenging. Lindsey is skilled in working with the aging population to adjust to their new normal and find the joy this season has to offer. If this sounds like you or a family member/friend reach out today.
Many people carry around unresolved grief for years before they realize there is no easy way through it. For some people the emotions are just too intense to deal with at the time, for others life is simply too busy to stop and focus on your own feelings. Grief however, does not go away if not processed in fact carrying around unresolved grief is similar to carrying heavy suitcases in both hands while trying to live your life. Often times unresolved grief will show up years after the loss in the form of depression, anxiety or attachment issues.

Case management is a major stress reliever for our clients. Long term care placement and related needs can be extremely time consuming for those lacking experience in the field. Hiring a professional with years of experience will ease your mind and allow you or your loved one the chance to find the best fit the first time. For those planning to "age in place" seeking appropriate home care services can be a daunting task as well. Services are available to begin at the beginning by having a family meeting with all involved to determine the best plan of care or if you've already started by picking up wherever you left off. Additional common case management needs include establishment of Advance Directives and identifying other aging specialty professionals to meet various needs.
