Have you been feeling blue? Just don’t enjoy things like you used to? PEARLS might be right for you.
PEARLS is a program designed to assist older adults and adults living with a disability or Epilepsy who also are experiencing minor or major depression.
A PEARLS coach works one to one with individuals, in their home setting, to offer encouragement, feedback, and to develop an action plan. PEARLS coaches work with a clinical supervisor to monitor the individual’s progression and help with identifying and solving problems, encouraging engagement, and provide assistance with gaining skills to manage unpleasant feelings in order to improve the quality of life.
Sessions are on-going for six months.
