Aging brings many joys—grandchildren, more free time in retirement and wisdom gained over the decades. At the same time, our older years can also bring the loss of loved ones, stresses of age-related health concerns or diminished self-esteem.

Ringgold County Hospital’s Senior Life Solutions program, an intensive group counseling program for individuals over age 55, aims to provide assistance to people who are dealing with emotional or behavioral issues often related to aging. Following an individual assessment, group participants meet three times per week in a supportive, encouraging setting. The program staff includes a board-certified psychiatrist, licensed social worker, registered nurse and other professionals dedicated to the emotional well-being of seniors in our community.
