Psychological Support for Nursing Home Staff
LeadingAge NY has been contacted by PsychAssociates, a group that provides psychological services to a number of our members.
PsychAssociates has been reaching out and offering support to all staff of nursing homes and elder community programs. They are expanding availability and want to reach out to facilities throughout New York State, particularly to all who are working and living on the frontlines of this crisis, regardless of affiliation.
During these difficult times, everyone is coping as best as possible, but many could use a little support. PsychAssociates is offering emotional support to nursing home staff, caregivers, family members, and members of hard-hit communities.
PsychAssociates has set up a support line for people who are on the frontlines of this crisis and therefore often under a tremendous amount of stress. The support line can be reached any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The caller will speak briefly with a PsychAssociates office staff person, or they can leave a brief message at all other times. One of the PsychAssociates psychologists will return the call at whatever time the caller's message indicated would be convenient for them.
There are no out-of-pocket costs to staff members for any calls, and all calls are completely confidential. Please share contact information with staff, families, and community members.
