Are you concerned about an older adult, and not sure what the next step should be?
We have years of experience to assist you in the decision making process.
Thorough Bio-Psychological-Social Assessments regarding a client or loved one can be useful for both professionals and family members who want to know an elder's decisional capacity, next steps for care planning and what the most appropriate level of care might be.
Assessments can be provided in-home or in our Edmonds office, or another requested location. All assessments include cognitive testing, functional assessment and screening for older adult specific mental health disorders. Assessments include a written report with a summary and recommendations as well as contact with the healthcare provider if needed.
We also provide in person consultation and counseling for family members who are unsure about how to help their elder and would like assistance and support.
Counseling can be provided for the older adult in their residence as well as in our Edmonds office. We know that it can be difficult for elders in times of transition and life changes to travel, so we can come to them.
We specialize in helping our clients to address and cope with life transitions such as the death of a spouse or other loved one, relocation from their homes, or other life change. We provide support through the feelings of grief, loss, depression and anxiety that can often accompany the aging process.
For office counseling visits, please contact Bluestone Psychological Services @

Currently, we do take Medicare for in-home visits only, and are pending for Medicare office-based visits. We are approved for other forms of insurance. We also take private pay clients.
We provide training opportunities for anyone interested in learning more about older adults and the unique issues and challenges they may face.
We provide approved CEUs for mental health professionals and social workers. We can provide agency trainings on such topics as dementia, older adult mental health disorders, hoarding disorder, how to conduct geriatric mental health assessments, stress management and self-care for the elder as well as the professional.
