Seniors Deserve Special Treatment
Depression and Anxiety aren’t healthy at any age. Now, at Culbertson Memorial Hospital, seniors receive the special treatment they deserve. They can discover how to handle life’s challenges and find joy once again. The issues affecting seniors are uniquely challenging. Declining physical ability, loss of loved ones and isolation can lead to depression, anxiety and other issues. But problems like these are not normal at any age.
