Aged care mental health services

Supporting our resident’s mental health

Our mental health services are designed to provide dedicated support, focusing on the well-being of our aged care residents. Through personalised care plans and therapeutic interventions, we aim to create a nurturing environment that fosters mental health and emotional resilience.

Our mental health program

Our mental health program is a comprehensive initiative dedicated to addressing the specific needs of older Australians. Our team of experienced professionals is trained to identify and support individuals with mental health conditions, including mood disorders and depression. Through tailored care plans, our program aims to provide treatment and promote good mental health among older people.

We understand the significance of addressing mental illness in older individuals and work diligently to create a supportive environment that encourages open communication and emotional well-being. As part of our commitment to aged persons' mental health, Oxa Care's program incorporates suicide prevention strategies if required.

Our holistic approach recognises the challenges that may arise while growing older, and our mental health program is structured to provide targeted interventions to enhance the overall mental health of our residents.
