AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, August 7, 2023/ — – Destany Schadder, founder of Heiser Counseling, is proud to announce a new partnership with CapCog, the Capital Area Council of Governments. This alliance will provide necessary mental health services to seniors aged 60 and above, targeting individuals with mental health ailments who often find their needs unmet within the healthcare system.
This partnership enables qualifying seniors to receive 6 to 8 fully covered mental health counseling sessions, focusing on individuals with mild to moderate impairments or those temporarily suffering from severe impairments.

“By partnering with CapCog, we are expanding our reach and providing much-needed mental health support to seniors in our community,” said Destany Schadder. “We believe that mental health care is critical to overall health and well-being at all stages of life. Our seniors, especially those who have recently experienced health crises or hospitalization, are particularly vulnerable and often underserved. This collaboration allows us to make a positive impact.”

Beyond mental health counseling, the partnership also covers various support services. This includes caregiver support for primary caregivers aged 18 or older caring for an adult aged 60 or older or any individual diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or disease-related dementia.
