Mental health affects all ages and all walks of life.
iTrust Wellness Group provides psychiatric medication management and counseling services to both the elderly and homebound individuals.
Seniors may struggle with transitioning to a new reality, which can increase feelings of sadness, anger, and anxiety. They often have a fear of losing their independence and experience more social isolation. These life-altering events frequently lead to an ambiguity between what constitutes "circumstantial blues" and what are actual mental health concerns. Furthermore, current health conditions can make it difficult to differentiate between what is a physical and mental health symptom. Finding the true extent of mental health diagnoses can help clarify why symptoms are presenting and how to alleviate them.
Mental health medication management in this population can be a delicate process - we strive to ensure medications are adjusted in a methodical and conscientious manner. As part of our efforts to provide this, our clinicians visit elderly clients every 2 or 4 weeks in the comfort of their residential facility, and homebound care is held through a telepsychiatry platform to allow for convenient access without sacrificing quality of care. We additionally work closely with medical providers to coordinate care for the full spectrum of health for each client.
