THE PEARLS PROGRAM:
The PEARLS program at Inland Caregiver Resource Center is used nationwide. PEARLS is an evidence-based approach created to reduce depressive symptoms and improve the quality of life for seniors. PEARLS enables older adults to create long-term changes that can allow them to have a more active and rewarding life.
PEARLS is a community-based prevention and early intervention program that uses problem solving treatment methods, social and physical activation, and increased pleasant events to decrease symptoms of depression.
PEARLS consists of 6-8 sessions that take place in the client’s home or a private community setting. There is a focus on behavioral habits during the sessions. Additionally, the PEARLS Counselors empower individuals to take action and make lasting changes so they can lead more active and rewarding lives.
PEARLS is free and confidential and serves older adults (ages 60 and older) who live in Riverside County. PEARLS is funded by Riverside University Health System - Behavioral Health through the Mental Health Services Act - Prevention and Early Intervention.
