The Program to Encourage Active, Rewarding Lives (PEARLS) is an evidence-based program that educates older and disabled adults about what depression is (and is not), and helps older adults develop the skills they need for self -sufficiency and to maintain health, happiness and independence.

This program helps older adults develop skills necessary to identify feelings of being overwhelmed, blue or other signs that may cause depression. The program takes place in eight sessions over the course of six months in the home, over the phone, zoom or wherever is more comfortable.
