Senior Psychosocial Rehabilitation
Senior Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services (Senior PSR) are structured activities designed to support and enhance the ability of the elderly to function at the highest possible level of independence in the most integrated setting appropriate to their needs. The activities target the specific needs and concerns of the elderly, while aiming to improve reality orientation, social adaptation, physical coordination, daily living skills, time and resource management, task completion and other areas of competence that promote independence in daily life. Activities in the program are designed to alleviate such psychiatric symptoms as confusion, anxiety, disorientation, distraction, preoccupation, isolation, withdrawal and feelings of low self-worth.
Caring Days, Sunshine Club, Brighter Days I, II, and III, Common Ground and Lindy’s Place are Senior PSR Programs offered through Community Counseling Services. Our programs are designed specifically to meet the needs of individuals age 50 and over. Through our programs and community support/referral sources, we assist elderly persons to achieve their highest level of independent functioning. Services include social skills building, community linkage/outreach, leisure/recreational activities, therapy, assistance in activities of daily living, education and nursing services. Generally, programs operate 5 hours per day/5 days per week.
Senior PSR is available to individuals with Medicaid only.
