Did you know that home care is an option for individuals with psychiatric conditions? Having a family member myself with a psychiatric condition has really brought to light, how very few resources there are for mentally ill patients. Yes there are psychiatrists…but what about when the patient goes home? Many times medication compliance is a major issue to this population. Many need meal preparation, grocery shopping, medication reminders, monitoring for safety, as well as daily medication drop off by a Registered nurse. It is not very easy to get loved ones into facilities. The monthly cost can run between $6,000-$15,000 per month.
At Gulfshore Private Home Care, we strive to make families lives easier. This includes the families and patients with mental disorders. We can work with the client’s psychiatrist and our Registered Nurse to develop an appropriate plan of care for each patient. We do not brush mental illness aside. We want these patients to be treated with dignity and respect while receiving the care they so desperately need. There is the David Lawrence Emergency Department in Naples Florida if the need arises. There are also local psychiatric rehabilitation centers in the event that the level of care goes beyond what home care can safely provide. Please call us if you or your loved one thinks that our services can benefit you. 239-249-5927 or submit a contact form at our website www.gulfshoreprivatehomecare.com
