Counselling

Counselling can help in coping with a crisis, can promote healthy relationships, and aid decision making. It helps establishes a crucial support network that fosters insight and self-development.

Samvedna Senior Care has extensive experience in dealing with psychological and emotional issues faced by elderly. As adults we may sometimes find it difficult to manage our parents health and emotional needs despite the best of intentions. Our counselling psychologists, help elderly and their children cope better with the challenges that come with old age.

Given below are the kinds of counselling we provide at our center, online, telephonic or within the comfort of your home.

Geriatric Counselling

"Loneliness kills. It's as powerful as smoking or alcoholism" says Robert Waldinger, who was part of Harvard Study of Adult Development.

Older adults often find themselves struggling while dealing with the challenges that they face as they age. Some of these challenges are:
  • Negative Thinking and Depression
  • Stress, Worry and Anxiety
  • Mood Disorders
  • Loneliness and Isolation
  • Low self-worth, lack of motivation
  • Bereavement
  • Adjustment Problems
  • Other Mental Health Concerns
  • Memory Problems, Mild Cognitive Impairment, Dementia

Counselling can help make it easier for the person who is experiencing such negative emotional states or difficulties in coping.

Caregiver Counselling

We believe in 'caring for the carer'. As carers we need to look out for our own mental health needs and find all the support we can.

Caregiving for a loved one as they age can be very hard especially for the spouse. Taking support from our expert advisors can help lesson that burden. It is also important to watch out for signs of burnout and caregiver stress and take out time to unload with our specialists.

Here are some areas where we can help:
  • Dementia Caregiver Counselling
  • Caregiver Stress Prevention Counselling
  • Keeping aging parents engaged
  • Dealing with challenging behaviors
  • Family Counselling
  • Couple's Therapy for elderly
