The lotus grows in the dark swamp, then opens its blossoms each morning, rising to the warm sunshine. In Egyptian philosophy it is the symbol of rebirth. In Hinduism and Buddhism it is the symbol of awakening.
At times in life, especially in the late stages of life, we come face to face with transitions. These can include moving to a smaller home or facility, adjusting to loss of areas in which we used to have power. We also face challenges in physical health and mental health, as well as adjustments in family relationships and many other areas of life.
All of these areas require nurturing and support, and at times we do not know where to turn.
I have assisted families working through transitions of aging for twenty-eight years. These transitions can include challenges with placement at home or in a facility, physical decline, mental decline including Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias, emotional issues and mental health, adjusting to physical changes and multiple losses of aging, as well as many other areas.
During the first one to two sessions, we will identify what the presenting issue for the family is. The middle sessions will discuss resources, proposals for working on the identifying issues, ideas and assistance, and finally integration culminating in resolution to the areas originally identified as issues.
