Approaching the twilight years of life can be a daunting experience. In addition to being increasingly aware of one’s physical frailty, old age can also lead one to experience debilitating psychological concerns that can make daily functioning difficult. Often overlooked as a normal part of the ageing process, these psychological concerns (like dementia, or Alzheimer’s) require early intervention rather than being ignored.
If you know a loved one between the ages of 40-65 who requires psychological, emotional and physical guidance for their underlying concerns — or maybe someone who wants a reliable support system to help them navigate these golden years — then reach out to us. Our experts are here to help you and your loved ones!
As a responsible adult in the family who seeks to assist the elderly
and provide the necessary support for them to live an easy-going life, you can seek intervention
from a geriatric expert at Heart It Out. We can help you if an elderly family member is:
Experiencing any existing physical, emotional or mental health-related concerns. Our expert will not minimise the concerns but rather equip your loved ones with techniques and ways to prevent problems in the future.
In need of a viable support system to resolve unhealthy ways of thinking and acting. Our experts can aid them with self-help activities that will help improve their behaviour.
Geriatric therapy helps not only the senior citizens battling psychological concerns but also their loved ones. Counselling enables the family to be a nourishing support system for the elderly family member. Therapy equips the family with various strategies and techniques to help them cope better with the concerns faced by the senior member of the family.
A therapist can not only help you identify and gain insight into areas that are stopping you from being the partner you want to be, but also equip you with efficient tools to cope with the situation.
Cheating can cause scars or trauma that are difficult to heal even after one carefully rebuilds the relationship. Therapy can help heal these as it works towards uncovering the root of the problem and enables you to reconnect healthily in the process.
Relationships work efficiently when both partners give consent to every major decision taken. However, arriving at a consensus can be difficult and you might need expert help with it. Our therapist can be that objective voice that helps you arrive there.
Accept who you are and embark on a journey towards fulfilment.
Identify and resolve old negative patterns or ways of thinking.
Experience growth and change in a greater sense. Commit to a process that will ensure a fulfilling life.
Couples’ therapy is not restricted to couples with extreme conflicts or problems in their relationship but can also help couples who may want to
Enhance your relationship with the help of our licensed professionals.
Seeking help is vital for all humans to lead a functional and healthy life.
Nevertheless, reaching out for help can sometimes be more overwhelming than the actual problem.
Especially, due to the following reasons:
The ‘stigma’ attached to mental illness: Mental health concerns are constantly being addressed by everyone across the world on multiple platforms. More and more people are prioritising their mental health the same as their physical health. Nevertheless, a large part of the population continues to perceive mental health as a taboo. We aim to eradicate this taboo around mental health. Book a session with our expert to gain fresh perspectives and reconnect with yourself.
Fear of being judged by the expert: We understand the amount of courage it takes to be vulnerable and open up to someone, even if it is a professional with an intent to help. Our experts are full of unconditional positive regards and we assure you that no matter what, they empathise. There is zero room for judgement at Heart It Out.
Each individual can have varied experiences during a session. We understand how an unpleasant encounter in the past may hold you back from opening up again. Don’t you worry, we at Heart It Out offer a wide variety of plans to choose from before you commit to a long term plan. We want you to take your time and progress gradually. We’re just a call away.
Trying something new for the first time can be overwhelming for a person of any age. More so, if you are someone who feels that they have experienced everything in life, and nothing new remains to be seen. When persuading your elderly member to try therapy for the first time, be mindful of the place and surroundings where you bring up the conversation. Do not pester if they seem uncomfortable. Give them the time and space they need, while giving them constant support. Reassure your loved one that it’s a sign of strength rather than weakness to take charge of their own health and seek help when required.
The elderly people belong to a generation that thinks of mental health issues as unconventional and even fictitious in some cases. Though there might be an internal recognition for psychological intervention, elderly people take time to accept and value it the same as physical health.
