Why Senior Peer Counseling?

Many of us have difficult times in our lives as we age. It can be helpful to meet with someone close to your age to share your thoughts and feelings and receive emotional support.

As we age certain changes can occur. Some of these changes are depression, isolation, illness/disability, anxiety, loneliness, and grief and loss.

A trained Senior Peer Counselor can provide support dealing with these challenges.
