Jefferson Center offering expanded mental health & wellness services

The Senior Services program at Jefferson Center is excited to announce new services at no cost for older adults  (age 60+) who live in Jefferson, Clear Creek, Gilpin, Broomfield, Adams, Arapahoe, and Denver counties. New options available include a COVID-19 support group, a Buried in Treasures workshop for those struggling with clutter or hoarding behaviors, and Wellness Counseling for individuals who would like one-on-one support to meet wellness goals.  All services will be held via Zoom or phone for the health and safety of Jefferson Center staff and clients, and are available at no cost through funding support from the local Area Agency on Aging and DRCOG.

The COVID-19 support group meets on Tuesdays from 10:30-12 :00 p.m., and offers a place for older adults to connect with others, learn ways to manage the stress of the pandemic, and practice skills such as mindfulness and gratitude to support their well-being.  

The Buried in Treasures workshop meets Tuesdays from 1-3 p.m., and offers a confidential, supportive, and non-judgmental environment to learn ways to celebrate the possessions you have while creating more usable living space.  The workshop teaches techniques to regain control of collections and clutter while honoring and creating space to enjoy the items you choose to keep.   

Wellness counseling services focus on providing one-on-one support to enhance client’s well-being in various areas of wellness, as defined by SAMHSA.  The eight dimensions of wellness include emotional, financial, social, spiritual, occupational, physical, intellectual, and environmental wellness.  Each client is offered 12 sessions with a Wellness Counselor who will help you set realistic goals based on your personal situation and give you strategies to reach them.
