Why do we provide mental health care services?
Adults living with mental health issues are all too often a forgotten part of our society. Without the right help, these individuals can live a lonely life surrounded by a stigma that is perpetuated by a deep misunderstanding of the challenges faced by those who suffer from poor mental health.
Mental health problems can be triggered by events, lifestyles and even genetics. Sometimes it becomes abundantly clear that the person you love is suffering. But in other cases, poor mental health can sneak up on an individual over a number of months or years.
Perhaps someone you know is battling chronic anxiety or depression? Or perhaps a loved one needs support at home to help with a bipolar disorder? If so, we can offer mental health respite services or care on a longer term basis for anyone living with mental health struggles, including:
- Particular phobias
Regardless of the diagnosis your loved one has been given, the varying symptoms and effects of mental health issues can make it extremely difficult to live a normal life without specialist support and unwavering compassion – two things which can be provided by our experienced live-in care services and mental health carers. Our carers are professionally trained to deliver high-quality mental health support at home, ensuring that those they care for can continue living independently in the familiarity of their own surroundings.
Access mental health home care
Mental health can affect people in various ways. The sheer complexity of mental disorders makes helping those in need especially challenging; but live-in care can go some way to ensuring that your loved one is safe, secure and fully supported through the good days and the bad days.
How can mental health home care help?
As a mental health care agency, we have a great deal of experience in providing live-in care for those living with mental illness. Our experienced team of mental health carers are on hand to help out with all of the daily tasks that may have become difficult for your loved one including:
- Meal preparation
- Domestic tasks, such as cleaning
- Medication management
- Personal care
- Assistance with bill paying and paperwork
- Providing companionship
Whether you’re looking for mental health respite services or support on a longer term basis, we know that care for mental health is about more than the practical side of things. In fact, the emotional support provided by our live-in carers is, without doubt, of most value to the customers who receive mental health home care.
Those who find it difficult to engage in day-to-day activities – and, in some cases, who struggle to simply get out of bed in the morning – will benefit from the emotional encouragement and companionship that is provided by our mental health carers. A live-in carer will not fill the role of a professional psychologist. But they will be able to talk through your loved one’s difficulties and provide them with a sympathetic ear, often when they need it the most.
If you are currently caring for someone with mental illness, we can provide short-term respite live-in care while you take some time out for yourself.
