Blue Moon Senior Counseling is proud to offer therapy services to older adults throughout Louisiana.
Around 800,000 seniors live in the state of Louisiana, and that number will grow in the next 10 years. Many older adults enjoy the warm weather, beautiful nature, rich history and culture of Louisiana. Even in the best locations, though, seniors sometimes struggle with mental health.
Blue Moon Senior Counseling provides in-home senior counseling for Louisiana residents who are facing stress, anxiety, grief, or any other mental or emotional obstacles. Our mission is to support you on the path to health and happiness.
Our mobile therapists travel to your home to provide counseling We want the experience of therapy to be as simple, safe, and comfortable as possible for you, and offering in-home services helps to accomplish this. We see clients who live independently and those who live in retirement or assisted living communities.
Blue Moon Senior Counseling has been providing in-home senior counseling for almost 10 years. We have been consistently expanding our services throughout the United States with the goal of making counseling accessible to as many older adults as possible, and we’re happy to include Louisiana in our service area.
Our team is a group of licensed clinical social workers who specialize in senior counseling. All of our therapists are educated, experienced, and licensed with their state’s board.
Whatever challenges you’re facing, a professional on our team can help. Here are some common mental health concerns that our Louisiana therapists address with their clients during counseling:
Unfortunately, rates of depression are on the rise in Louisiana. However, depression is very treatable with counseling. If you’re struggling with feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or guilt, it might be time to reach out to a therapist.
Seniors often feel anxious about experiencing a fall or a medical emergency. Phobias and obsessive-compulsive thoughts can take a serious toll on your mental health also. In-home senior counseling can be a great option for treating anxiety because you can stay in the safety and comfort of your own home.
Loss can become more common with age, but counseling is a valuable source of support if you’re experiencing grief. Your therapist can help you process the complicated emotions involved in the bereavement process.
Seniors are more likely than the general population to feel isolated due to retirement, changes in family structure, or mobility limitations. During senior counseling, you can explore ways to cope with loneliness or find opportunities for meaningful interaction with others.
It can be difficult to navigate the changes that come along with aging. Medical diagnoses, loss of independence, and other transitions can be hard to cope with, but counseling can help you find ways to maintain your mental and physical health as you age.
Our team understands that traveling to appointments can be inconvenient and time-consuming. We want the counseling process to be a source of comfort for you, not a source of stress. Therefore, Blue Moon Senior Counseling is happy to offer in-home senior counseling services to our Louisiana clients.
Talking about your mental and emotional health during counseling can be difficult. Many seniors find that they feel more comfortable discussing these topics when they’re at home. The familiar environment can put you at ease and help you speak openly and honestly.
It also can be easier to connect the therapy services to the rest of your life when you receive counseling at home. Your counselor can have a better understanding of what your day-to-day life looks like, and with your permission, they can confer with your family or home health staff.
Blue Moon Senior Counseling offers telehealth counseling for our Louisiana clients. If you live in a rural location outside of our service area, you could connect with a counselor through a video conferencing platform.
Telehealth counseling is a great option that makes therapy far more accessible. Our therapists are experienced with telehealth counseling for seniors, and they’ve had great outcomes with this service model.
Whether you’re dealing with a mental health diagnosis, a loss in your family, or adjusting to the aging process, we’re here to help. You may face challenges in your retirement years, but counseling can empower you to make positive changes that will improve your quality of life.
