Kalamazoo, MI

Finding a way to care for family members who struggle with mental health issues can be difficult for many. One senior mentally challenged man in Michigan got lucky – he spends his days at the local firehouse where the firemen there do everything from his laundry to cooking for him to helping him bathe. He’s been a part of the family at that firehouse since he was 13, and everyone there agrees that he’ll be taken care of for the rest of his life.

But most families in Kalamazoo, Michigan don’t have the 24-hour support to offer that kind of hands-on care to mentally ill loved ones. So where do you get the help you need to make sure that your family member is well taken care of? Contact us at the phone number listed above to learn more about your options.

Managing a Loved One’s Mental Health Treatment

Consistency of care is one of the most important characteristics of successful mental health treatment. Unfortunately, in the most severe cases, patients are unable to manage their own schedules, transportation to and from appointments, medication regimen, and other aspects of care. Family members can be vital in aiding their challenged loved ones and increase their chances of success in treatment by:

  • Writing a large schedule for daily appointments and updating it regularly
  • Providing transportation to and from appointments
  • Sitting in on appointments, asking questions, and taking notes on treatment protocol
  • Setting alarms for medication to help your family member remember when it’s time to take the next dose

Respite and Support for You

In severe cases of mental health issues, it’s important that the family members who maintain the care of their loved one have ongoing support and respite help as needed. Contact us today to learn more about your options in mental health treatment for you and your Kalamazoo family member’s needs.
