Services for Older Adults

Individual, couple and family counselling is available to people aged 55 and older on an ongoing basis or for a single session at the Walk In Counselling Clinic. Our staff have received training to work with people aged 55 and older and their loved ones to help them cope with topics that include:

  • Transition and change in work, residence and lifestyle
  • Negotiating family relations
  • Loss and grief
  • Social isolation
  • Health changes including memory concerns
  • Trauma and abuse, both past and present
  • Anxiety and depression

Older adults can also receive information about community resources available to support them and assistance to plan for meeting their future care needs.

Family counselling and mediation is available to assist families to plan for future care, help seniors express their wishes to their family members, and to resolve family disagreements.

Volunteer of the Year
Our 65th Annual General Meeting took place on May 24th and we were very pleased to present Katrina Rossi with our Volunteer of the Year Award.

Katrina began volunteering with us in May 2014 as an intake worker at our Walk In Counselling Clinic and has also volunteered as a facilitator in our Temper Taming Together group.

We are so appreciative of all of the volunteers who give many hundreds of hours of their time and skill each year, allowing us to offer services like the Walk In Counselling Clinic.

Congratulations, Katrina!
