Psychological support is an integral part of our services at Haym Salomon Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Brooklyn.
It is vital that those under our care are supported in every way, and psychological support is a key part of recovery and assisted living.
Who needs psychological support?
No one should feel debilitated due to poor psychological health. Psychological support is needed by all the patients and residents under our care to some degree. We believe that some patients are in particularly fragile moments in their lives and require the most psychological support from our devoted team.
Those experiencing depression, dementia, and similar conditions need a huge amount of support to feel comfortable and make improvements daily. It is essential to support those in altered states of mind, as well as allowing their families peace of mind that we have our residents’ best interests front and center.
We also put a focus on our patients experiencing or recovering from paralysis, spinal cord injuries, and many more conditions. Whether this is a trusted member of staff to talk to or a professional psychologist to work through troubling emotions with. We also offer targeted recreational activities to improve self-esteem such as our beauty parlor and barber shop.
In short, we work with every patient to determine exactly what we can do to aid their psychological health alongside their physical care plans. When our patients are in good psychological health, the following steps to recovery become simpler and more effective.
How do we help?
With over 60 years of experience, Haym Salomon Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation is dedicated to providing psychological support to each and every patient.
Every member of staff is committed to ensuring our residents and out-patients always feel supported psychologically, not only physically and medically. This is made possible by the collaborative effort of our team members at Haym Salomon Home.
Our highly trained nurses are equipped with the appropriate skills to care for vulnerable individuals. In addition to this, social workers work very closely with patients, aiding the transfer from their previous lifestyles to being under our care—a transition that is difficult for many of our residents.
It is crucial to us that the people we look after feel supported 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is why our team works all hours, working around our patients and their specific needs.
Pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments
Pharmacological support is sometimes required by patients suffering from side effects, such as depression, resulting from their disease or illness. After careful consultation and in-depth discussions with medical professionals, we may decide that a patient will benefit from drug treatments to combat psychological conditions.
However, we are able to provide our patients with a number of non-pharmacological treatments and support to aid their psychological health. Ranging from therapists to group activities and help from social workers.
Psychological support at Haym Salomon Home is not a “one size fits all” approach – each individual will benefit from different kinds of support. We are dedicated to providing the exact type of care that those here need and want.
