Mental Health Care Harmony Healthcare February 5, 2022

Mental Health Care

Being diagnosed with a mental illness can be life changing, but doesn’t necessarily mean loss of independence. We understand mental illness can affect people in different ways, each bringing their own unique challenges, but with a fully trained and dedicated carer Harmony Healthcare make it possible for you or your loved one to live as independently as possible.

We take the emotional well-being and dignity of the people we care for extremely seriously. By supporting people to live in their own home, we often see a positive impact on self-confidence.

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 mental health support at home to help with a bipolar disorder? If so, we can offer mental health carers or carers on either a respite or longer term basis for anyone living with mental health struggles, including:

  • Schizophrenia
  • ADHD
  • OCD
  • 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. Your carers should be 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 Homecare

Mental health can affect people in various ways. The sheer complexity of mental disorders makes helping those in need especially challenging; but our professional mental health carers can help to make sure can go some way to ensuring that your loved one is safe, secure and fully supported through the good days and the bad days.

As a mental health care provider our staff have a great deal of experience in providing carers for those living with mental illness. Our experienced team of mental health approved 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 mental health Homecare is about more than the practical side of things. In fact, the emotional support provided by your live-in carer is, without doubt, of most value to the customers who receive mental health Homecare.

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 your mental health carer. 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.
Our approach to mental health care

Mental Health illness is extremely challenging and we recognise the difficulty entrusting a stranger to care and support you and your loved one, however our carers provide guidance, support and round the clock care, giving you peace of mind.

Unique carer matching

We always take the time to get to know you as an individual before assigning a private carer. We don’t just look at a carer’s experience and knowledge, we carefully hand-pick your carer to ensure there are mutual interests, hobbies, likes and dislikes alongside a similar sense of humour.

Care that’s built around you

We understand how important it is to keep your freedom, that’s why our carers fit around your routine and choices and deliver support that’s unique to each of their patients. Whatever your preference, our Homecare options are completely flexible. Call us today on 0800 292 2331 to find out how we can support you and your family with specialist mental health care at home.
