Vital Aging: Our Care Service Program for Seniors

The Vital Aging & Adult Services program is a nationally award-winning recognized best practices program that improves the lives of older adults and those who care for them.

As part of our Masters Program and in a collaboration between Valley Behavioral Health and Salt Lake County, this nationally award winning project provides mental health treatment, companionship, and activities for seniors across the Salt Lake Valley.

PEARLS (Program to Encourage Active, Rewarding Lives)

What is PEARLS?
PEARLS was created to help educate older adults about what depression is and what it is not and helps them develop the skills they need for self-sufficiency and more active lives.

How long does PEARLS take place?
The program takes place in six to eight sessions over the course of four to five months in a community-based setting that is more accessible and comfortable for older adults who do not see other mental health programs as a good fit for them. The first 4 will be free of charge.

*Older adults do NOT need to be diagnosed with depression in order to participate in PEARLS.
