Welcome to Gero Champions

I'm Dr. Regina Koepp. I'm a board certified clinical psychologist and gerontologist.  With more than 15 years working in mental health, medical, and senior care settings and as a national expert in mental health and aging, I know first hand the challenges that senior care and mental health providers face.

My Gero Champions training programs address these challenges using:

  • Science
  • Dignity
  • Compassion

Sexual Health Gero Champions

Studies show that older adults continue to enjoy intimate relationships throughout their lives.

In fact, sexual intimacy has many benefits for older adults. A recent study revealed that older adults who engage in sexual activity score better on cognitive tests.

Even older adults with cognitive disorders, like dementia, maintain a need for intimate connection. And, in fact... benefit from intimacy.

Sexual intimacy among older adults with dementia, however, has many associated risks and complications.

Does your agency have a framework for honoring a person's right to sexual expression while protecting them and other residents from harm?

Mental Health Gero Champions

The population of the United States is aging at significant rates. In fact, by 2034, there will be more people aged 65 and older than under the age of 18.

It's imperative that mental health providers understand mental health concerns that commonly affect older adults and have effective treatments. Unfortunately, most mental health providers have not received training to adequately assess and treat older adults and their families.

Is your agency prepared to meet the mental health needs of older adults?

Equity & Inclusion Gero Champions

In order to provide effective mental health and senior care that meets ethical guidelines and truly understands the individuals and families your agency serves, providers must possess awareness, knowledge, and skills surrounding intersecting multicultural identities.

Agencies lacking cultural humility have poorer client satisfaction, higher rates of dropout, and higher legal costs.

Are the providers in your agency aware of how their own identity variables influence their work with the people they serve?
