Family serves as informal case managers, providing and coordinating care for their relatives. One of the significant traits that are created due to mental instability is ‘loneliness’. Feeling of loneliness leads to depression and helplessness. Lack of support from the family is a relatable factor for this. A hand from the side of family will give them hope and confidence to move forward in life and raise it to a better standard.
Apart from basic personality traits of the person concerned, it is the attitude and the actions of the members of the family that determine the future course of the life of the mentally challenged person. In addition to the caretakers, family should also give them love and care which will make them stay happy and relaxed. Only through love and care we can raise them to proper life. In order to have proper medication and therapies, family cooperation is a must.
Family counseling is equally important as casework. Before reintegration, the family should be given awareness regarding the post care or after care services of the resident. They should follow them and report to the case worker or shelter home regularly. Family plays a vital role in changing a person’s life.
