From the point of diagnosis, Seasons is able to help children, teens, and adults cope with the changes that occur with serious illness. The treatment Seasons provides positively affects the entire family, improving the healing process and creating family unity. Weekly support groups are offered for children and teens ages 5-18, as well as for the adult living with illness and the caregiver in the family. Support groups are facilitated by licensed mental health clinicians.
A serious illness impacts an entire family, changing the lives of children, parents, and loved ones.
Such an illness can have serious consequences, disrupting existing lifestyles, relationships, and financial situations. Due to these additional stressors, parents can become less accessible to their children, while children struggle with how to cope to manage the crisis. Fear, anger, and remorse may overcome family members.
At Seasons, we strive to assist each client in navigating the journey of a family member’s illness, providing support groups to assist in the coping and healing process.
Support Groups Provide An Opportunity for Families to:
- Gain support from others in a similar experience
- Learn and expand coping skills
- Reduce patient stress
- Improve how a patient responds to treatment
- Increase communication within the family surrounding the illness
Illnesses May Include But Are Not Limited To:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
