Why Treatment?

Approaching the later years of a long and rich life can come with unique challenges. Older adults may be suffering from the tremendous loss of outliving friends and loved ones, feelings of isolation, or distress from cognitive decline and dementia. Even when seniors appear to be in good health, their world may be turned upside down by stress, hidden depression and illness. Caregivers may not be aware of these struggles; in other cases, they may be sensitive to an older person’s suffering but may not know how to offer help. Additionally, caregivers may themselves be suffering from the stress and exhaustion that comes with caring for others.

However, there is hope. Research shows that when seniors receive counseling, they are less likely to be hospitalized for physical decline. They become more social and experience substantial improvement in interpersonal relationships.

ISS professionals offer objective and compassionate support. They are there to listen, to normalize difficult situations, and to help each client create pleasant moments. ISS provides in-home services for clients living with ailments that affect physical mobility. Through counseling, ISS professionals can help alleviate feelings of loneliness and anxiety, and improve the overall mental health of seniors and the disabled.
