Psychogeriatric assessment - The assessment is performed by a psychogerontologist, social worker and nurse. The purpose of the assessment is to gain comprehensive and in-depth insight into the needs of the patient and their family. The assessment is multidimensional, relating to the individual's emotional, cognitive, family and social state. The assessment provides an overall evaluation, and a treatment plan is designed that also responds to the needs of the patient's family, which also has to cope with the changing situation.
Individual psychotherapy - Individual therapy tailored to the patient's personality and needs. Treatment incorporates various therapeutic techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), narrative techniques, short-term therapy and more.
Group psychotherapy - Group therapy is designed to help people who want to improve the way they cope with the issues they are facing in their lives. In group work, participants experience various emotions, behavioral patterns and relationship patterns that can be better understood and channeled to effectively address their current reality.
Participation in a group is free of charge, but is contingent upon an introductory meeting and coordination.
The groups offered as part of the service:
Group for seniors experiencing depression and anxiety - The elderly experience changes and crises such as retirement, losses and mourning processes, physical changes, conflicts with partners or family and more.
