Senior Peer Counseling Program

This program provides free, one-on-one peer support counseling in the home by trained volunteers. There are also support groups at the Senior Centers. To be eligible, a participant must be 60 years of age or older and experiencing depression due to transitions, changes, personal losses, or other personal problems which are deemed serious enough to jeopardize the older person's ability to live independently.

At a time when many of their family and friends are gone, these older adults may not require professional counseling, but do respond well to another senior who has had similar experiences.
