Life Transitions Program
Some psychological problems appear late in life or tend to reoccur over a lifetime. Older adults dealing with retirement, chronic pain, increased medical problems, cognitive impairment, loss of loved ones, and grief can suffer from a variety of psychiatric conditions.
The Life Transitions Program is an outpatient program designed specifically for older adults to improve quality of life and promote skill development to cope with various life challenges.
Goals of the Life Transitions Program:
- Improve psychiatric symptoms
- Teach transitional life skills/tools
- Enhance quality of life
- Promote independent functioning
- Adjust to acute or complicated losses
The Life Transitions Program meets at Prairie View’s Newton location and is scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to 11 am and Wednesdays from 11 am to 12 pm. Costs are generally paid by Medicare and other insurance companies. Prairie View’s financial counselors will work to establish affordable monthly payments if Medicare or other providers do not cover total costs.
