Community Members Invited to Open House at Myrtue Medical Center’s Senior Life Solutions Program

Community members are invited to join the Senior Life Solutions Program at Myrtue Medical Center for an Open House and ribbon cutting on Wednesday, Feb 5, 2020 from 2-3:00 pm in the lower level of Myrute Medical Center. Guests will have the opportunity to tour the program facility and ask questions while enjoying light refreshments.

Senior Life Solutions program, an intensive outpatient group therapy program, is designed to meet the unique needs of adults typically ages 65 and over experiencing difficult life transitions that can sometimes be related to aging and symptoms of depression and anxiety or stress from age-related health concerns.

Following an individual assessment, participants meet three times per week in a supportive, encouraging group setting. The program staff includes a board-certified psychiatrist, licensed social workers, a registered nurse, and other professionals dedicated to the emotional well-being of the seniors in our community. Anyone can refer individuals to the program including family members, physicians, or other health professionals. Individuals can also self-refer to the program.

Dave Bauman, Senior Life Solutions Program Director was an RN on the Med/Surg floor at Mytrue before taking the position with Senior Life Solutions. He is passionate about community and committed to the cause of Senior Life Solutions. His background in service, ministry, teaching and most recently bedside nursing has allowed him to hone the life skill of caring for and listening to seniors in the community.

"Everyone has a story to tell and taking time to listen, we help people navigate the difficult stages in their lives. That's what Senior Life Solutions is all about,” said David Bauman. “The small group aspect of the program can benefit seniors by giving them a place to talk about issues in their lives. We welcome their insights and we will support them through the transitions of life. The Open House is great opportunity for anyone interested in the program to come see what it's all about.”
