Redefining Yourself After Retirement
For many, their identity and self-esteem come from their work lives. Or, their social connections and friendships. There can be major feelings of loss as adults shift out of careers and into retirement. At Grit Therapy, we understand how disorienting this transition can be. We also believe that retirement can be a time for reinvention. This can provide older adults with a chance to build a meaningful, connected life. We help clients to redefine their identity and self-esteem during this new chapter.
Your time may have been consumed by work and family duties. So, you may not have had the chance to focus on your own needs and interests. We help older adults rediscover and develop the parts of themselves that they finally have time to nurture.
The Challenges of Aging
You may be enjoying retirement, grandchildren, or a different pace of life. But, you may also be feeling the mental and physical effects of aging. It can be difficult to redefine your identity after retirement. It can also be overwhelming to deal with medical conditions and find activities as your access and mobility change. Our clients often struggle with the loss of loved ones. We offer support for older adults to grieve and adjust to a new world without their partners and friends.
Depression in Older Adults
Depression is a serious concern for older adults. So, early detection and treatment are key to recovery.
According to the CDC "It is estimated that 20% of people age 55 years or older experience some type of mental health concern. The most common conditions include anxiety, severe cognitive impairment, and mood disorders (such as depression or bipolar disorder)."
"Depression, a type of mood disorder, is the most prevalent mental health problem among older adults. It is associated with distress and suffering. It also can lead to impairments in physical, mental, and social functioning. The presence of
depressive disorders often adversely affects the course and complicates the treatment of other chronic diseases"
