Community Hospital – Fairfax

Senior Life Solutions

Gail Heitman, RN, Program Director

Aging brings many joys–grandchildren, more free time in retirement, and wisdom gained over the decades. But, at the same time, our older years can also bring the loss of loved ones, stresses of age-related health concerns, or diminished self-esteem.

Community Hospital-Fairfax’s Senior Life Solutions program, an intensive group counseling program for individuals over age 65, aims to provide assistance to people who are dealing with emotional or behavioral issues often related to aging. If you or someone you know suffers from any of the following, this program might be right for you.

  • Loss of a Loved One
  • Decreased Energy
  • Difficulty Sleeping/Eating
  • Life Transitions
  • Acting as a Caregiver
  • Recent Health Diagnosis
  • Chronic Health Condition
  • Feeling Lonely or Isolated
  • Feeling of Uncertainty and Worry
  • Loss of Interest

Following an individual assessment, group participants meet three times per week in a supportive, encouraging setting. The program staff includes a board-certified psychiatrist, a licensed social worker, a registered nurse, and other professionals dedicated to the emotional well being of the seniors in our community.

Please note that no physician or health professional referral is needed. Family members or self recommendations to the program are encouraged. 

CH-F has seen individuals from the age of 47-98. Check to see if you are eligible today!

Ensure you or your loved ones get the help they deserve.
