What Is Psychiatric Rehabilitation?

 

Psychiatric rehabilitation may help get life skills back on track after treatment for mental illness. The treatment of mental health disorders usually includes two aspects: the actual treatment itself, and psychiatric rehabilitation. Treatment focuses on reducing associated illness of patient like in case of a person with fever, the goal of treatment is to bring down the body temperature.

 

Unlike cases of physical illnesses where medication or surgery may provide a complete cure, mental disorders require medication along with other forms of treatment. The type of treatment administered to the patient depends on their diagnosis, the severity of the illness, as well as their physical and emotional state. A person may need a combination of some of these forms of treatment: medication, therapy, counselling, hospitalization, brain stimulation treatments, and mental health rehabilitation. Often, the lines demarcating treatment and mental rehabilitation may be blurred.

 

Mental health rehabilitation is an aspect of treatment that focuses on helping the person return to an optimal level of functioning and to achieve life goals. This is brought about by providing medical, psychological and social input. There is no strict boundary between treatment and mental rehabilitation.

 

Not all persons with mental illness require rehabilitation for mental illness. For many patients, medication or a combination of medication and therapy is sufficient to help them get back to a functional life. For others, rehabilitation for mental illness may be an essential final part of the treatment cycle.

 

Why is Rehab for Mental Illness necessary?

 

People with severe and chronic psychiatric illnesses such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia may be mentally disabled by their condition and may require psychosocial rehabilitation to pick up basic skills. In case of disorders such as mental retardation, a process of rehabilitation of psychiatric patients is followed to help patients learn skills necessary for daily functioning.

 

The process of rehabilitation of psychiatric patients aims to help the patient develop the social and intellectual skills required to integrate with mainstream society. This helps the person find a meaningful role for themselves, at home and at work. Rehabilitation supports the patient by providing opportunities, preventing stigma and discrimination.

 

Who should undergo and what are the expected results

 

A psychiatric rehabilitation centre is intended for long-term mentally ill patients. Poor mental health is expected to deprive a person with the necessary set of skills to be fully functional, contributory, and supportive of a community. Also, one has to live with the stigma that comes with having the health problem, and this may only further force the patient to retreat and disassociate from others.

 

The different signs and symptoms of mental health can also increase the risk of discord, conflict, and ineffective communication in the group where the patients belong. A person with a mental health problem is more likely to:

 

  • Withdraw from society and lose interest in others
  • Lose the ability to concentrate or understand himself and others
  • Have a disconnection between himself and the environment
  • Develop an illogical way of thinking
  • Promote unusual, imaginary, and exaggerated beliefs
  • Feel a sense of distrust and suspicion toward others
  • The success of the rehab significantly varies from one person to another as many factors come into play. One of these is the patient’s receptiveness or openness to newer or modified skills, as well as the chance to get back to society.

 

Nevertheless, patients can expect to understand

 

  • They will be respected.
  • They will develop a new sense of belief in their capacity to grow and learn.
  • They will experience personal growth through continuous support and learning.
  • The services or resources they need to recover quickly and effectively will be accessible.
  • They will work alongside a diverse team that can address different areas of their needs and challenges.
  • The will learn to make their own decisions and in the process, become empowered individuals.
  • They can build their own support group in the community, including their family members, with the help of their psychosocial rehabilitation team.

 

They will experience growth in various areas of their lives.

Follow up reminders are sent before the scheduled date and if a person fails to come for follow up for two consecutive days, a key worker makes a home visit to interact with family members and to provide the necessary support that will ensure follow up.

Doing catheterization by self is a possibility; however, getting it done in the presence of medical personnel who have the expertise can be the most comfortable process that provides a feeling of peace to the minds of the patients. This is considered to be one of the recommended and best possible processes to avoid any form of discomfort and injury during the procedure.

Care24 can provide in-home services and can help in easing the process of urinary catheterization a home with the most professional help in the medical sector. Care24 can provide the same comfort at homes without the patient having to actually travel places or face any injury while self-implement the catheter. Any individual who has the need of either male or female catheterization at their homes, a simple call will help to get a representative nurse to reach the doorsteps in the shortest possible time.

The nurses are efficient in safely executing the process of urethral catheterization. They also serve the patients with the best possible information and guide them with the knowledge towards that maintenance of the catheter. A simple call to Care24 will enable the professional nurse to reach out to the customer’s place and take care of all the needs for the catheterization.

How We Made A Difference

  • review rating 1  Worst experience ever! Have hired a caregiver and a nurse. The nurse arrives late repeatedly inspite of being told about how critical medication timings are, falls asleep during day duty, is clueless about timings and medications inspite of us having guided them and has no sound medical knowledge whatsoever. She insisted that a fever of 99.7 is normal and even tried feeding the patient through riles tube with the patient lieing down inspite of there being a recliner arrangement. Neither the nurse or the attendant knew the correct way of lifting a patient from the bed, it was all ignorant tug and pull. Any complaints made to the organisation made no difference as they need more than a day to arrange for a replacement and one needs to deal with the same incompetent staff for another day or risk having no caregiver coming over (as bluntly informed by the call center) at all. Furtheron, the same performance continued the next day. In fact, in the absence of the family members it was observed through a baby monitor that the attendant and the nurse were sitting and chatting away while the patient was trying to sleep and literally PASSING FOOD OVER TO EACH OTHER OVER THE PATIENT! If this wasnt bad enough, the attendant developed a cough and a fever and when a call was made to care 24 asking them to send a replacement on the next day at least as the patient has low immunity, the organisation again gave a choice, we could have the same attendant and risk the patient getting sick, or have no attendant for the next day as they didn't have anyone available. Do not fall for the sales pitch of the executives over the phone as their premium prices and promises of exceptionally well trained staff is nothing but marketing mumbo jumbo. The professionalism and training of the staff that comes to your door is as garbage as the service of the organisation. More importantly, do not trust this organisation with the health and well being of your loved ones as no one in the entire heirarchy of care 24 really 'cares'. You would be better off hiring someone from a local agency. Have had much better experiences with randomly contacted nurses and attendants through justdial. Even though they live far, they reach on time The local organisations are also promptly able to provide replacements if need be. P.S. The 1000 or so rupees registration charge they take from you initially, is essentially a financial clickbait as its money they've made off you after they have stressed you out, contributed to deterioration of the patient and compelled you to suspend their services.

  • review rating 2  My father had a hip bone surgery in January. I have been using Care24 services ever since. The attendants that cane were good in the beginning. However their services have become good to bad to worse to worst in the last 15 days. They changed the night attendant without informing me personally just 6 hours before the time. My father had just settled down with the last attendant and now they were sending a replacement tonight. To add to my frustration the guy didn’t turn up and did not answer the calls. When I called their call centre - they said they can’t help me at this hour. Well- I can’t help but call them CARELESS CARE24.
