Home Care for People with Mental Health

Mental Health affects all people regardless of your age or physical fitness or well being.  During their recovery period, people become homebound. Some common mental health scenarios we work with include:

Common Mental Health Scenarios

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Physical disability
  • Long-term illness (e.g. cancer or heart disease)
  • Dementia-causing illness (eg. Alzheimer’s disease)
  • Physical illnesses that can affect thought, memory, and emotion (eg. thyroid and adrenal disease)
  • New environment or change
  • Illness or loss of a loved one
  • Alcohol or substance abuse, poor diet or malnutrition

Mental Health is misunderstood or not even acknowledged in existence.

Mental Health at times is misunderstood or not even acknowledged in existence. .Seniors might feel ashamed or frightened by their symptoms, thinking this might be a normal part of aging. Often, seniors and loved ones and friends, fail to recognize the symptoms of treatable mental illness.

Home Care for Mental Health

Mental Health disease can affect the entire family.  Initially the caregiver for someone with Mental Health disease may be a spouse or other family member.  Family caregivers can be vulnerable to fatigue, burnout, and stress, especially since Mental Health is sometimes associated with mood changes.  Caregivers can feel “defeated” by the growing list of tasks that they are no longer able to manage and because they may feel like they never get a break.

We are here to help!

  • 24-hour care or live-in care
  • Assistance with local transportation or long-distance travel
