Worldwide pregnant women experience mental health during pregnancy or after birth. On average WHO reports that 10% of pregnant women and 13% of women who have just given birth experience a mental disorder, mainly depression. The mother may experience perinatal mental illnesses and may experience a range of conditions, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, post-partum, psychosis, and post-traumatic stress disorder. NHS outlines that around 20% of mothers in the UK experience perinatal mental illnesses. If the illnesses are not treated, it can affect other members of the family, including children and the father. Around 25 – 50% of fathers will experience perinatal depression. Generally, this is a stressful time for the family who are likely to be under pressure during this time.

Having a child can be a stressful event, as you are unable to undertake activities and have a regular routine which you are used to. Individuals may struggle to adapt to a new way of living. Parents are likely to argue during this stressful time and there is likely to be sleep disturbance throughout the night. The father and mother are likely to spend less time together which impacts their relationship, and it is likely to lead to depression and anxiety.

Initially, most women will experience tearfulness and low mood, as soon the baby has been born, however, if this continues you may be suffering from postnatal depression and perinatal mental illness. Symptoms are different for every mom.

Mental health is just as important as your physical health and that is why it’s not something that should be neglected. If you are suffering from an illness or if you can’t get out and about like you used to, then it can be detrimental for your mental health. You can find that you don’t want to do activities that you used to be interested in. You could withdraw from yourself and others around you and could end up having potentially harmful thoughts. This is where a home carer can come in. 

They can ensure you aren’t alone

One of the biggest causes of mental health issues can derive from loneliness. This has been especially true during the pandemic, but can be a continuous problem. A survey by Age UK found that over 2 million people in England that are over the age of 75 live on their own. They also found that over a million people go over four weeks with no contact with someone they know such as a neighbor, friend, or family member. If you are lonely it can be hard to reach out.

This might be because of pride or just because you feel helpless. Your carer will be a friendly face that you don’t need to reach out to as they will always be there. Whether you need someone during the day or a live-in carer who is with you all the time, you can rest assured you are in safe hands at all times.

They can give you back your independence

One thing that can take a toll on mental health can be if you lose your independence. A carer can help encourage you to do things yourself at home while knowing you are under watchful supervision. By being able to do these things on your own it can help you feel more positive about yourself. This will therefore help your mental wellbeing. You will feel more like your old self, more capable, and have small daily challenges that when you complete will be a real mood booster.

They can help with brain training activities

Your carer can help to set you up with activities that can boost your mental health. This can include word searches, playing chess with you, sudoku and quizzes. These are all good for keeping you feeling positive and your brain active and healthy. It can also help with dementia and reduce your likelihood of developing it as well as potentially slowing symptoms. They can also play your favorite music and help with other activities that can keep your mind busy. It will also be a welcome distraction from any sad or negative thoughts you might be feeling.

They can address your health concerns

One of the things that could impact your mental health could be if you are worried about your physical wellbeing. If you have recently been diagnosed with a condition then this could leave you feeling worried and anxious, with many questions. A carer has looked after many people and may know the answers to things you are fretting about. If they don’t, they will know the right contacts and be able to get the answers for you.

They can support your family

If your family is looking out for you and know that they are worried about you then it can cause you to feel guilty and impact the way you feel mentally. You might feel like a burden and this can be upsetting. By having a carer you know that your family won’t have to worry about you so much, which in turn can ease your own anxiety and feelings.

These are just a few ways that having a home carer can help with your mental health. If you are suffering mentally make sure you speak to someone and get the help that you deserve. If you are looking for care at home services, we are here to help. Find out more about what we do here.

If you are looking for care at home job, we have a number of vacancies which can be found here.

The winter can be an incredibly difficult season for anyone, but it is especially challenging for the elderly. With a plethora of various ailments and accidents waiting to strike, elderly people are the most at risk during this precarious time of year. These weather-related disasters are best to take precautions against, and the folks with live in care can prevent most of the possible dilemmas associated with the winter by following a few steps.

When It Comes To Hypothermia…

Hypothermia is a state of bodily distress caused by the internal temperature dropping to a dangerous level. The changes that accompany ageing can increase the risk of hypothermia. The possibility of someone having hypothermia is indicated by cold skin, fatigue, confusion, and slowed heart rate. To prevent against the dangers of hypothermia , you should

  • Refrain from being outdoors for very long.
  • Stay dry and keep clothes warm.
  • Layer your outfits so that you can stay warm.

When It Comes To Frostbite…

The indicators of frostbite are ashy coloured skin and pain in the extremities, but frostbite is most likely to affect the nose, ears, cheeks, chin, fingers, and toes. Though it is not normally fatal, it can result in the loss of a limb in the extreme. To prevent against the dangers of frostbite, you should

  • Cover all parts of your body, which includes wearing mittens and something over your face.
  • Run the cold parts of your body under warm water to keep them from becoming damaged.
  • Have your live in care professional ready and able to call 999 if needed.

When It Comes To Shoveling Snow…

Though snow shoveling in and of itself is not a bad thing, it can result in some very unfortunate circumstances for the elderly. The heart works extra hard to pump blood throughout the body during the cold, and this additional strenuous activity can cause some serious strain on the heart. It is also a dangerous activity for people with osteoporosis, because it can result in falls that damage bones. To prevent against the dangers of snow shoveling, you should

  • Watch out for iced pavements, including sidewalks!
  • Hire someone else to shovel the snow and salt the walkways.
  • Keep a pair of nonslip boots nearby to help control possible slipping.
  • Consider the use of additional support options, like a cane fitted with an ice pick.

As you get older, we know how important it is for you to maintain your independence and to keep enjoying the things you have always done. But have you ever considered hiring a professional carer that can  help you stay in your own home spending your time doing the things you love instead of having to do the everyday chores that life requires!

We are able to offer care for a wide range of personal requirements, conditions and circumstances. Whether you want companionship and some help around your home; more specialised care for conditions such as dementia or Parkinson’s; or if your family carer simply wants a holiday… whatever you require, your needs are always our priority.

The best way to find out more is to call us and allow one of our advisers to come and see you and your loved ones and make sure you feel safe and your needs can be met.
