Why do we provide mental health care services?
Adults 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 that they have 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.
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 the mentally ill. Our experienced team is on hand to help out with all of the daily tasks that may have become difficult for the individual, including:
- preparing meals
- cleaning the home
- managing medication
- help with bill paying and paperwork
Long term or respite care for adults with mental health issues is about more than the practical side of things. In fact, he emotional support provided by our live in carers is, without doubt, of the most value to the individuals we take care of.
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 – are in great need of the emotional encouragement and friendship that’s provided by our home carers. A live-in carer will not fill the role of a professional psychologist. But they will be able to talk through the individual’s difficulties and provide them with a sympathetic ear, often when they need it the most.
If you are a primary carer for someone with poor mental health, we can provide short-term respite live in care while you take some time out for yourself.
