The caring profession is forever evolving and in recent times there has been excellent progress in the field of mental health care – and by following the latest guidelines, techniques and counselling methods we can hope to achieve far more than ever before. For example, one important aspect of recent years is understanding how we can tailor care to the individual.
It’s the little things in life that often bring the most joy; sharing a joke with friends at a local meeting, cooking a delicious meal, singing or listening to music, volunteering help, learning how to paint or make ceramics, how to grow vegetables, and so the list goes on. But when suffering from ill-health it can be difficult to see how such activities are possible or worthwhile and how such distractions can make us feel more connected.
At Panacea Care, we offer constant encouragement and help individuals by providing structured activities. We can also offer a range of in-house psychological therapies such as Motivational Interviewing, CBT and Counselling sessions to help our service users resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities to find the right motivation they need to change their behaviours.
Circumstances can overwhelm us at times and we may be left feeling empty, disconnected and without purpose. At such times it is important to have the right people around us, who can understand our difficulties and offer relevant support.
Our care staff are able to offer the kind of support you would expect from a good friends and family, and of course they’re trained to identify the point at which additional support is needed and respond accordingly.
At Panacea Care we make sure individuals reach for and maintain optimal physical and mental health and we do this by ensuring that individuals follow their recovery programme as set out, but also to look out for their interests as would a friend.
When we see an opportunity for greater independence we’ll discuss the possibilities with family members and engage other professionals in order to review the care we offer.
