|About the program
||Later life is a time of contentment and contemplation for most people. It can also be a time of loss, due to the death of loved ones, a decline in physical health and loss of independence. This time of life can be difficult to adjust to and may also reawaken earlier unresolved losses.
The Seniors Program at The Hollywood Clinic aims to assist older people to live contented and fulfilled lives and focuses on helping people adjust to loss and change, manage depression and anxiety, improve sleep and socialise. The program has been designed to meet different patient needs on different days.
Each patient is assigned a mental health therapist who monitors the patient’s progress and liaises with other health professionals as needed. Group topics include:
- Anxiety management
- Depression management
- Improving communication
- Cognitive stimulation
- Leisure activities
- Lifestyle education
||You will require private health insurance or Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) entitlements or agree to self-fund this course. You will also need to provide a referral by an admitting psychiatrist to participate in the program
