Aging is an unavoidable fact of life. Today, older adults are healthier, better educated, and more concerned about the quality of life. Recent studies on the brain’s plasticity, its ability to grow as a result of new experiences and activities, encourages older adults to return to learning. Neural plasticity also has implications for helping change attitudes and even change the way we react to situations.
Transitions and losses are common as we age, and most of us can weather through the changes, but some older adults lack certain coping skills and need help from a psychologist. Pastoral care, friends, and family support are important and may alleviate immediate concerns, but often the root issues remain.
Anxiety, depression, and stress are serious results of children leaving home, financial concerns regarding retirement, unemployment, death of friends and family, increased isolation, medical problems, reduced sense of purpose, institutionalization, and more. Therapy may be needed for family members who are coping with the extra burden of an elder adult living with them. Trying to balance the normal day to day activities with the added attention needed for the older person can be quite trying. Stress and anger management are important may be needed for peaceful family life.
