Mental Health is Connected to Overall Health
Mental health is a vital part of overall health. It affects how people think, feel, and behave. And even though our senior clients often “seem okay,” nearly 20 percent of people over age 60 suffer from some type of mental health issue, such as depression, anxiety, OCD, hoarding disorder, PTSD, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia. Yet, less than 3 percent seek help for their problem.
What can your caregivers do?
- How do your caregivers communicate with someone who is depressed?
- Do they know what to do if a client is suicidal?
- How can caregivers help a client who has OCD, or has been a lifelong hoarder?
If you’re unsure of how your team will handle these sensitive situations, then it’s time for training!
