  • Are you struggling with thoughts about your mortality?
  • Have you suffered the loss of loved ones?
  • Are you struggling to come to terms with a decrease in your functioning due to injury or illness?
  • Do you find yourself feeling isolated more than ever?

Getting older is inevitable. And with getting older we experience significant change. The transition from working to being retired, slowing down and having less energy, and losing loved ones are just a few of the difficult changes we experience as we mature. Feelings of isolation, sadness, despair, and regret may accompany such changes, leading to depression and anxiety. Having someone to whom you can talk can help you maintain your sense of independence, feelings of hopefulness, and your integrity.
