Mental Health and Wellbeing for Aged Care Residents

What is Mental Health and Wellbeing for Residents of Aged Care Facilities?

We offer a variety of services to residents, their families, and Carers, including:

  • Clinical Mental Health Services for Residents with experienced Psychologists, Social Workers, or Mental Health Nurses offering visits to the facility.
  • Group Counselling for residents, their families, or carers that have newly transitioned to an Aged Care Facility
  • Digital Story Services, provided by volunteers who visit residents over a few months to develop a video about their life. This is based on the understanding that the telling of one’s story is a means to reaffirm identity, uniqueness, and lived experiences.

For information about changes to service delivery due to COVID-19, please view our COVID-19 Information

About Mental Health for Residents

Mental Health Services can be accessed by residents with mild to moderate mental health symptoms who are able to engage in mental health treatment. The person may have a diagnosed mental illness or be at risk of mental illness, or the person may be having difficulties with transitioning to an Aged Care Facility relating to adjustment, grief, and loss.
