Senior Renewal makes a difference

Senior Renewal can make a difference in the lives of seniors. Life changes can lead to feelings of depression and anxiety. Patients may feel sadness, lack of pleasure or interest in hobbies, social withdraw, sleep disturbances, loss of appetite, irritable, lack of energy or motivation, loss of self-worth and feeling hopeless with suicidal thoughts. Some may feel nervous, jittery, or jumpy with negative thoughts and unwanted fear and worry. Senior Renewal can help with the symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Senior Renewal operates from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Transportation to and from the program is available. Cost of services is covered by Medicare part B, Medicare Disability, and most secondary commercial insurance health plans. For more information on Medicare Advantage coverage, call 618-651-2940.
