Barrett Hospital & HealthCare Forms Partnership With Senior Life Solutions

Barrett Hospital & HealthCare announces it has formed a partnership with Senior Life Solutions. Senior Life Solutions is an intensive outpatient program designed to meet the unique needs of older adults experiencing depression, anxiety, or other mental challenges often associated with aging.



Individuals may benefit from the Barrett Hospital & HealthCare’s Senior Life Solutions

program if they are experiencing any of the following common indicators or triggers of

depression and anxiety.


• Anxiety

• Changes in appetite

• Depression

• Difficulty sleeping

• Feelings of sadness or grief lasting more than two weeks

• Feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness

• Lost a spouse or close family member

• Loss of energy

• Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities

• Recently experienced a traumatic event


Barrett Hospital & HealthCare will soon be offering the Senior Life Solutions program to

Southwest Montana residents. The professional staff includes a board-certified

psychiatrist, a licensed therapist, a registered nurse, and other healthcare professionals.



“In our most recent Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) report, mental health

is one of the main concerns of our rural community,” shared Taylor Rose, Chief

Executive Officer of Barrett Hospital & HealthCare. “We are continuing to prioritize

mental health support, by increasing available mental health resources dedicated to the

emotional well-being of the older adults in the community who are struggling with

depression and anxiety.”


“The Senior Life Solutions program will help improve the lives of older adults in the

community who may be struggling with their mental health. Our team’s knowledge of

mental health and older adults will help Barrett Hospital & HealthCare serve a population

that is often overlooked by providing a service specific to them,” says Julia Sugg, MSN,

RN, Program Director.


After being assessed, older adults can meet up to three times per week for a group

therapy session. Individual sessions are also available, as well as teletherapy services

offered by phone or computer.


Anyone can make a referral to the Senior Life Solutions program, this includes self,

family members, physicians, or other healthcare professionals. Appointments can be

scheduled by calling 406-683-3145.



Staff will begin seeing patients on October 23rd, and the Senior Life Solutions program

is located at 90 MT Hwy 91 S., Dillon, Montana 59725.
