One in three Islanders will be over the age of 65 by the year 2030. Seniors are a large and integral part of our Island community, and MVCS is here to support them.

We believe everyone, regardless of age, background, or ethnicity deserve to have access to the services they need. 

We understand that as we get older our needs and lifestyles evolve. We provide individual, couple and family therapy services for seniors. We strive to reduce isolation, support functioning, make connections and increase independence among our senior population.
