Mental illness can vary in severity and manifest in different ways. Living with a mental health issue can have a significant impact on a sufferer’s daily life.
Mumby’s mental health live-in care ensures full emotional and practical support throughout the good and bad days in the familiarity of your loved one’s own home. Our professional carers are on hand to help with the daily tasks that may have become difficult for them and to offer emotional encouragement and companionship.
Live-in Care for Mental Health
Mental health covers a broad and complex range of illnesses including depression, anxiety, panic disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It is common for mental illness to happen in people with other health problems such as dementia and cancer. Symptoms can include withdrawing from people and social situations, low mood and mood swings, interfering thoughts, personal hygiene neglect and sleep disruption.
Our highly-trained carers are understanding and compassionate of the challenges that mental health problems can bring. Having a consistent one to one carer offers valuable emotional support for your loved one.
Often people with mental illness find daily life difficult. They may struggle to simply get out of bed in the morning, become reclusive, fail to care for their hygiene and appearance, have difficulties managing medication, coping with money and paying bills, preparing nutritious meals, and keeping to doctor appointments.
Having a supportive and empathetic live-in carer living with your loved one can help face these challenges without them feeling overwhelmed or helpless. Our carers can provide a nutritious meal to aid their mental health and sensitive reminder of personal hygiene. They can also provide peace of mind for the family that their loved one is safe and supported inn their own home.
