Senior Life Solutions

One of the services relocated to the new and improved Josephine Oltmann Outpatient Services Center at Community Hospital of Staunton, is Senior Life Solutions.  Older adults have unique mental health care needs, and Senior Life Solutions has the services to help!    

Good mental health contributes greatly to an overall feeling of well-being.  And when left untreated, mental health disorders in older adults can lead to diminished functioning, poor quality of life, and increased mortality. Research shows mental illness can even slow healing from physical illnesses.
