I am asking this question because yesterday was R U OK day, which is a reminder for us to check on the mental wellbeing of those around us. By sincerely asking the question, “Are you ok?” you could save someone’s life or encourage them to find the support that is right for them.
So, what does this have to do with aged care? Many older people and their carers live with the unpredictable nature of medical issues, disabilities, and dementia. Whether the loved one is at home or in a nursing home, the impact on everyone’s mental health can be enormous. There may be grief, guilt, uncertainty, a strain on relationships, anxiety, and depression. If you, or someone you know, is experiencing this, please take the time to listen to them.
They may not want to share their feelings, but just being there can make a difference!
Carer Gateway is there to support carers for any age group. You can phone 1800 422737 or look up carergateway.gov.au. It is an initiative of the federal government, which can provide counselling, advice and arrange respite when needed.
And finally, if you are not feeling okay, talk to someone or call Beyond Blue on 1300 22 4636.
