When you are hurt or have an operation you are often given Physical Therapy (PT). It seems to me that many older people who have to adjust to new physical constraints also need Mental Therapy (MT). How about that: I invented the new career and the acronym at the same time.
MT is different than Psychiatry. It helps you adjust to the present situation with simple exercises. It deals with just issues related to the change in circumstances. In other words it is PT for the mind. Plus MTs are available and don’t have the stigma that psychiatry has to many people.
