World Mental Health Day at Right at Home

| Health & Wellness

Good mental health is important to people of all ages, and that includes you! 

According to Mental Health Australia, good mental health is when we can cope with the stressors of our daily lives, participate in loving relationships, contribute to our community, and work towards our goals. 

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) states that poor mental health may be defined in different ways but commonly includes mental illnesses such as anxiety disorders, affective disorders (such as depression), psychotic disorders, and substance use disorders.  

According to the AIHW’s latest web report, people living in residential aged care comprise a subgroup at higher risk of poor mental health. At 30 June 2019, of those people living in permanent residential aged care, the majority (87%) were diagnosed with at least one mental health or behavioural condition and 49% had a diagnosis of depression. 

This is just one reason in-home care can help our ageing population.  

Home is the place many of us feel most comfortable, most relaxed. Home is full of familiar sights, smells, and sounds. Home is where many of us would like to stay well into the latter years of our lives. For many older Australians, the thought of moving into residential aged care or an assisted living facility is traumatic. At Right at Home, we understand these stresses, and we are here to help. 

Right at Home provides nationwide aged care services to older Australians. We also support individuals and their families dealing with a range of conditions including Parkinson's, Dementia and Alzheimer's. Our select, highly trained care staff are equipped to provide some of the best in-home aged care services in the country. Right at Home offers companionship, personal, and skilled nursing care. In many cases, our clients require assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), which is the term used to describe daily self-care activities within the home. 

Planning home care for a loved one can be emotional and may bring on unwanted stresses. There are smorgasbords of home care companies offering multiple services, but which one is best for you and your loved one? We believe that it’s important to start looking early, do your research, and make those enquiries.
