We all need a little help at some stage of our life. But what mental healthcare options are there for the elderly or disabled who have a hard time leaving the house?
Fortunately, there are plenty of options for mental health care.
WHAT IS HOME CARE?
Home care can be a great option for anyone who has trouble functioning and performing normal activities in their daily lives. Home care providers can assist with things like cleaning, housekeeping, assisting with personal hygiene, grocery shopping, running errands, preparing meals and more.
Home care providers are trained professionals who learn to understand the needs of their clients. They seek to not only help with daily activities but to also provide companionship and support throughout the day.
WHAT PATIENTS CAN BENEFIT FROM HOME CARE?
Home care can be helpful for anyone who needs daily help and support, maybe even guidance in their own homes. This makes it a great fit for the elderly and those with physical or mental limitations. Home care providers are trained to work with patients with a wide variety of health issues, providing daily care to meet their personal and medical needs.
Visits by a home care aide can be a life-changing experience for mental health care and treatment.
Home care providers can provide round-the-clock support, monitoring the client’s mood and activities, helping them remain calm and happy, and even working to help them recover from mental illness.
Home care can also provide full-time support for those with more serious mental health issues, providing some of the support of full inpatient treatment. For those with less serious needs, a home care provider can provide companionship, help with organizing schedule and help with medications.
Home care can be a great option for people with:
- Eating disorders
- Personality disorders
- Attention deficit disorder
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- And more
