Mental Health Home Care

Experiencing a mental health issue is a personal event. Feeling raw and vulnerable, the thought of getting into a car and visiting a psychiatrist’s office may be too difficult. It is hard enough to struggle with unfamiliar symptoms that leave you feeling depleted or afraid, so leaving the security of your home can present a daunting obstacle that is hard to overcome.

When the impact of a mental health disorder creates a sense of emotional instability that prevents you from traveling to a mental health professional, why not get the psychiatric help you need without ever leaving your home?

Kinkaid Private Nursing Care offers premium mental health and psychiatric care within the comfort and safety of your familiar surroundings. Read on to learn more about how mental health home care works and how we can help you or your loved one.

What is Mental Health Home Care?

Mental health home care, also known as psychiatric home care, refers to the care one receives for various psychiatric disorders from the comfort of their home. It is usually possible for patients to receive the same care they would receive at a hospital, treatment center, or doctor’s office, but from home instead.

In fact, receiving mental health care at home can be more beneficial than receiving the same care at a treatment center because patients receive high-quality care, but without the stresses of having to leave home. And in most cases, the at-home care is of higher quality than the same care elsewhere. We outline the benefits of receiving our mental health care at home as opposed to a treatment facility later on this page.

During mental health home care, the psychiatric nurse provides medication management and coordinates therapy sessions, holistic therapies, and outside social services if indicated. You can also expect your care to consist of the following:

  • Psychiatric evaluations
  • Medication dispensing and monitoring
  • Psycho-educational coping skills
  • Transitional services for patients stepping down from residential care or hospitalization
  • Clinical case management and scheduling adjunctive services
  • Psychotherapy support
  • Family counseling and caregiver support
  • Crisis intervention
