Aging can bring a range of significant life changes, such as retirement, loss of a spouse, or changes in physical abilities. These transitions can be difficult to navigate, and can sometimes lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, or isolation. Our geriatric psychiatrists are trained to help seniors process these changes and develop coping strategies to manage difficult emotions.
Mental health issues such as depression and anxiety are common among older adults. Unfortunately, these concerns often go untreated due to stigma or lack of access to mental health services. Our geriatric psychiatric services provide a safe and confidential space for seniors to address their mental health concerns, and our psychiatrists work collaboratively with clients to develop treatment plans that meet their unique needs.
As we age, we often experience more loss, whether it be the loss of loved ones, friends, or our own physical abilities. Coping with grief can be a challenging process, and our psychiatrists are here to provide support and guidance through this challenging time. We offer grief services to help seniors process their emotions and find healthy ways to cope.
Chronic health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or dementia can be overwhelming and can take a toll on mental health. Our psychiatrists are trained to work with seniors who are managing chronic health conditions and can provide geriatric and adult psychiatry to help them manage their conditions while maintaining their mental health and well-being.
Maintaining social connections and positive relationships is important for mental health at any age, but it can be particularly important for seniors who may be experiencing social isolation. Our psychiatrists can help seniors work on communication and relationship skills, identify social support networks, and develop strategies to maintain meaningful connections with loved ones over the course of geriatric psychiatric treatment.
At Clarity Clinic, we take a holistic approach to geriatric psychiatry, recognizing that mental health is interconnected with physical health, social support, and environmental factors. Our psychiatrists work collaboratively with clients to develop personalized treatment plans that address all aspects of their well-being. Our Chicago area clinics offer a range of evidence-based services and techniques, including initial psychiatric evaluations and pharmacotherapy. Our psychiatrists are also trained in methods such as TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation), which can be effective for seniors when necessary. We understand that seeking help from a geriatric psychiatrist can be a big step, and we are committed to making the process as comfortable and accessible as possible. We offer flexible appointment scheduling, and our psychiatrists can provide services both in-person and via telehealth, depending on client preferences and needs.
