Mental Health Counseling

Elder Care Clinicians support seniors with mental health concerns that interfere with daily life. They provide private counseling to elders in their own homes who are coping with issues of:

  • depression
  • grief
  • anxiety
  • adjustment to changes
  • substance abuse
  • dementia
  • or other mental health concerns

Elder Care Clinicians work closely with CVCOA case managers for assessment and assistance with seniors dealing with self-neglect issues.

CVCOA collaborates with Washington County Mental Health to provide these services. Call the Senior Helpline at 1-800-642-5119 for more information.
