Equilibrium™ Mental Health Services

Alzheimer’s Family Center (AFC) provides outpatient mental health services for adults through one-on-one counseling and group therapy sessions by our expert therapists via Zoom video conferencing. We specialize in helping people overcome symptoms of depression, grief and loss, anxiety, effects of memory loss, and other aging issues such as social isolation. In addition, we help family members cope with the multiple issues and relationship dynamics that often accompany caring for a memory impaired loved one.

Where and when do the therapy sessions meet?

All therapy services are provided via ZOOM in the comfort and safety of a participant’s home using a desktop, tablet or cell phone. During group counseling, there are ten participants maximum per group. The groups meet daily and we offer both morning and afternoon sessions. Beginning with two therapy sessions per week is suggested, but attendance can be up to four times per week. Each session lasts 45 minutes.

An initial psychiatric evaluation is provided by AFC, and patients will receive individual follow-up therapy sessions once per month. A physician’s referral is welcome but not required.

How much does therapy cost?
Services are covered by Medicare and many commercial insurance plans. We assist with determining the eligibility of insurance coverage. There are options for private pay or scholarships available.
