Community Integration Counseling

Community Integration Counseling focuses on the indirect effects of requiring nursing home level of care. The loss of physical and processing abilities can affect a person’s emotional well-being. The sense of loss, anger or frustration that is commonly experienced among survivors can inhibit the adjustment process. This time-limited service is focused on assisting people to effectively manage the emotional difficulties associated with adjusting to life with disabilities. It is intended to assist people with revising long-term expectations, changing roles and the impact of these changes on people on their family members and information supports. Our qualified counselors assist individuals in addressing issues such as grief or family dynamics while identifying constructive ways for them to handle their emotional responses. The counselor also works along with other service providers to maximize the entire recovery process.
