The Solutions Unit at Northeastern Health System offers solutions and support for families and patients 60 years of age and older suffering from the effects of age. We help improve the quality of life for our patients through numerous counseling and social activities. We also have experienced social workers, psychiatrists and therapists who always treat patients with compassion and respect. Aging can present many life challenges that the older generation is often unable to resolve. These challenges may include decreasing physical or mental capabilities, the inability to live independently, or the loss of lifetime companions. The older adult may react to these situations by displaying apathy, confusion, or forgetfulness that may be misinterpreted as normal behaviors of aging. Although older adults may frequently experience these behaviors, they are not always a normal part of aging. With effective therapy, independence and coping skills can be maintained or improved to provide a more satisfying lifestyle. Solutions offers daily treatment planning and activities to challenge and stimulate each patient , which include: Individual , group, and family therapy, Occupational therapy, An assessment of the Activities of Daily Living (ADL), Life skills counseling and education, Recreation and social activities, Medication management, Continued care planning.
