At the Human Support Group our mission is to make life a little easier by extending that helping hand. It’s our job to take the worry away and let you get on doing what you do best – enjoying your independence.
With our extensive experience in domiciliary care and reablement we can help with the vital advice and guidance on getting access to this much needed support. We know our way around the care system, what financial support and information is available and how to make it work for you.
Our mental wellbeing is just as important as our physical. It’s easy to dismiss feeling down or being forgetful as being ‘all in your mind’. If you or someone you care for has symptoms of depression or is increasingly forgetful tell someone about it.
A staggering 20% of people in the UK suffer from some form of depression. This is not just feeling sad or upset, but an intense feeling of persistent sadness, helplessness and hopelessness often accompanied by physical effects such as sleeplessness, a loss of energy, or physical aches and pains.
This is a term used to describe various different brain disorders that have in common a loss of brain function that is usually progressive and eventually severe.
If you have any concerns about possible depression or dementia talk to your GP.
