1 in 4 people in the UK is diagnosed with a mental health problem, and with the increasing numbers of people being diagnosed, it is more vital than ever that access to home care and support is available. The right package of home care can significantly contribute to the quality of life that sufferers can enjoy.
Mental health problems can cause individuals complete, or partial dysfunction within their daily lives; they may have trouble managing their medications, get into debt, become more reclusive and withdrawn, personal hygiene and appearance may suffer. These, and many other factors may combine to restrict social engagement, reducing self-esteem and isolating the person concerned even more.
Mental illness can affect people of all ages, is different in everybody, and there are many causes. By creating the most appropriate care routine, the enjoyment of life, independence and self respect of the sufferer can all be enhanced. Commonly at Cildacare, we care for people suffering from:
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Eating Disorders
- Bi-Polar Disorder
- Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD)
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
To make sure that the care provided is right for the individual, our carers will create a regimen of care and help with day to day management providing support and encouraging self-help. This approach relies on our carers becoming part of a team with the patient, case workers, social workers, family members, friends, and others working with individuals to support them to reach their goals.
