Emotional support for aged care residents

Emotional support for aged care residents

Going into aged care can be fraught with grief and other crippling emotions as people leave the homes and people they love, lose their independence and grapple with fading health.

Indeed, a review conducted on behalf of Beyondblue two years ago found that older people living in residential aged care facilities are five times more prone to mental health issues than their independently living counterparts.

In one bid to address the mental health issues that can surface at this time, Anglicare has launched a new Emotional Wellbeing for Older Persons Service for aged care facilities in northern Sydney.
