In-Home Senior Counseling in Maine

Blue Moon Senior Counseling’s team of mobile therapists provides in-home counseling to clients in Maine.

More than 20 percent of the population of Maine is age 65 or older. The state is a very popular retirement destination, offering beautiful beaches, good food, and a peaceful atmosphere. As the population ages and more older adults take up residence in Maine, there’s a growing need for senior counseling services. Blue Moon Senior Counseling is here to help.

There are so many great experiences to look forward to as you age, but there also can be some challenges. Aging and retirement bring about a number of life changes, and adjusting can be difficult. Counseling can be a valuable way to find support and maintain good mental health.

Blue Moon Senior Counseling is a team of Licensed Clinical Social Workers serving clients from coast to coast. For almost a decade, we have provided in-home senior counseling services to help our clients achieve a wide variety of mental health goals. Whatever goals you want to work on, our therapists are here to support you.

We offer counseling to Medicare beneficiaries in Maine who live alone, with family, or in senior living communities. Some of our clients receive short-term counseling while they go through difficult life events. Others work with their counselors for continued support over a long period of time. Our therapists are experienced with treating many different mental health problems, and they adjust their approach to meet each client’s unique needs.

Here are just a few of the many challenges we can address:

Depression

Maine has one of the highest rates of depression in the country, and the dark and snowy winters may contribute to seasonal affective disorder. Help is available, though. Counseling is very effective for treating depression and improving quality of life in older adults.

Anxiety

Seniors may struggle with generalized anxiety, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, or other types of anxiety. Blue Moon’s counseling services can help you address your anxious thoughts and develop healthier thinking and behavioral habits from the comfort of your own home.

Grief and loss

Bereavement is an incredibly difficult experience to go through on your own. Counseling can be a helpful way to navigate the grieving process in a supportive environment.

Coping with illness and aging

As you get older, you may face health issues, mobility problems, or a loss of independence. These changes can be tough, but senior counseling is an opportunity to develop coping skills.

Stress management

Stressful life events can occur at any age, and they can take a toll on your mental and physical health. Stress is especially harmful for older adults, so if you’ve found yourself regularly feeling stressed or overwhelmed, it may be time to consider counseling.

Benefits of In-Home Counseling for Seniors

We know that scheduling and arranging transportation to appointments can be stressful, so Blue Moon Senior Counseling travels to you. This allows you to fully focus your energy and efforts on the therapeutic process.

With in-home senior counseling, you don’t have to spend time commuting to your therapist’s office. This can be particularly helpful during the snowy Maine winters when inclement weather is common.

Privacy is one of the most common concerns seniors have when they begin counseling, but in-home counseling is completely private and confidential. Many people feel much more comfortable receiving counseling in their own home versus an office setting. At home, you’re in a familiar environment and you may feel less vulnerable as you speak about your personal life.

If you have home health staff, nurses or other professionals involved in your care, your therapist could meet and coordinate with them at your request. Our counselors would only reach out to your other healthcare providers with your permission, but continuity of care is a great way to achieve the best results across the board.

Telehealth Counseling

Blue Moon is happy to provide telehealth counseling to our Maine clients. Seniors who live in all areas of Maine can connect with their therapist through a video call. Telehealth counseling allows you and your counselor to speak face-to-face even though you’re in separate locations, so it’s an excellent option if you’re unable to meet with your therapist in person.

If you’ve been struggling with your mental health for any reason, you deserve help and support. Our therapists proudly offer in-home senior counseling services to Maine residents. With in-person or telehealth counseling, you can strengthen your emotional health, improve your quality of life, and get back to enjoying everything the state of Maine has to offer.
