Ascension St. John Sapulpa Offers Senior Life Solutions Outpatient Group Therapy Program


Ascension St. John Sapulpa is pleased to announce a partnership with Senior Life Solutions to offer an intensive outpatient group therapy program designed to meet the unique needs of older adults over the age of 65 struggling with symptoms of depression and anxiety often related to aging.

Aging brings many joys, like more time with family and freedom in retirement, but our older years can also bring difficult life transitions including the loss of loved ones and stresses of age-related health concerns.

Individuals may benefit from the Senior Life Solutions program if they are experiencing any of the following common indicators or triggers:  

  • Recently experienced a traumatic event
  • Lost a spouse or close family member
  • Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
  • Changes in appetite
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Loss of energy
  • Feelings of sadness or grief lasting more than two weeks
  • Feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness

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.

“We are excited to bring this new service to our community that is uniquely designed to improve the quality of life for our aging population,” said Mike Christian, Ascension St. John Sapulpa President and Chief Operating Officer.

Anyone can make a referral to the program including a patient’s physician, health care professional, or family member.
