How can the Aging Clinic of the Rockies help me?
Caregiver Support Program
If you’re currently a caregiver for loved one (e.g., parent, sibling, partner, child), you may qualify for FREE caregiver counseling sessions!
Caregiving can be a rewarding but stressful experience, with many caregivers benefiting from the support of counseling services. Topics generally include coping skills, education, connecting to community resources, help making decisions, addressing self-care, and finding support.
If you or a loved one are experiencing cognitive or memory difficulties, a neuropsychological assessment may be a helpful tool to determine the best course of action!
A neuropsychological assessment evaluates an individual’s functioning across a variety of different domains including cognitive, memory, language, motor, executive, emotional, and adaptive functioning. These assessments help to evaluate if there is a problem, the extent of the problem, potential causes of the problem, and to inform individualized treatment recommendations based on results.
General Mental Health Services and Psychotherapy
If you or a loved one are having a difficult time and would like some support, therapy services may be right for you!
Therapy can be effective for a number of issues, including life changes, relationships, depression, anxiety, age-related concerns (like coping with pain or cognitive decline), feeling lonely or isolated, and end-of-life concerns.
Senior Peer Counseling
The Aging Clinic of the Rockies is pleased to announce a new Senior Peer Counseling program that will connect older adults in Larimer County with trained paraprofessionals, who are also seniors.
These services are offered FREE of charge for residents of Larimer County. Sessions can take place wherever you and your counselor are most comfortable (e.g., at home, in a coffee shop, in our offices).
Senior Peer Counselors are volunteers who will be trained to provide emotional and support services and receive ongoing training and supervision. See attached brochure for more information.
