Live-in care guarantees 1:1 care
At Socium, you’ll hear us talk a lot about a ‘better day to day’. That’s because mental health difficulties aren’t an isolated part of life, they impact every single aspect of daily living.
So when you’re making efforts to move forward, it’s understandable that other areas of your day to day may be fairly low down on your list of priorities. This is where Socium can provide additional help; providing support to sustain and improve not only your mental health, but your physical health and your wellbeing, too.
A comfortable and relaxing environment
When it comes to recovering from a mental health crisis, comfort is crucial. In many cases, the setting in which care and treatment are delivered is every bit as important as the treatment itself.
It can be extremely difficult for people to “open up” in the impersonal and chaotic environment of an inpatient facility.
Live-in care allows your loved one to continue to sleep in their own bed, eat the food they like and to maintain their social lives. These are all hugely beneficial to the treatment of and recovery from a wide array of conditions. This also hugely helps the transition when live in care comes to an end.
Outpatient treatment can be much more effective at helping your loved one learn coping strategies and identify triggers or challenging situations than a stay at a residential facility.
Being able to quickly identify and respond to challenging real-life situations is key to sustainable recovery. Many of our live-in nursing clients experience chronic conditions that will always be with them in some way. Learning to live with and manage the condition is a critical element of recovering from an acute crisis.
Surround yourself with people who care
No one cares more about your loved one’s recovery than you. It is always important for people struggling with their mental health to remember that they are surrounded by people who love them and want to help them get better.
We don’t feel that isolating our clients from their established support networks promotes growth or recovery. Inpatient facilities can never be as effective as live-in carers when it comes to making use of existing support networks.
Our priorities at Socium
Provide a route forward
It can be extremely difficult to transition from inpatient treatment to care in the community. Because of this, psychiatrists are often reluctant to allow their patients to continue their recovery from home without evidence of a strong support network in place.
Live-in carers are an enormous step forward in this respect. We work with a lot of families of the patients of residential facilities, helping them to build up a treatment framework to prepare for their loved ones coming home.
Arranging full-time or live-in care for your loved one instils confidence in psychiatrists and other clinicians. This demonstrates to them that their patient will be well cared for at home and in the community.
Socium’s live-in care service is designed to:
- Ease the transition from inpatient treatment to outpatient recovery.
- Build a strong rapport with our clients, giving them a true one to one experience at no extra cost.
- Help our clients recover comfortably and securely.
- Provide complete confidentiality and privacy in treatment.
- Extend the support network of our clients, enabling early intervention and sustainable recovery.
