“Mental illness” describes a series of chronic disruptions of the neural circuits in the brain, and this directly affects how a person thinks, feels and acts. As such, mental illness is experienced differently by everyone. Some forms of mental illness, like depression, will affect a person’s mood, judgement and interpretation of life events. Other forms of mental illness, like schizophrenia, can cause hallucinations or delusions – people will imagine and/or feel things that are not actually there.
Mental illness, often accompanies certain illnesses in seniors and can negatively interact with dementia and other diseases they may have. Biological and environmental factors (like genetics, medications, lack of sleep and stress) can also affect mental illness.

After having many disappointing experiences with other agencies and caregivers, Carestay managed to match my parents with a caregiver who CARES and is committed to the needs of elderly people.
I highly recommend Carestay Healthcare Services to anyone that requires support to care for their loved one. The care they have provided my mother goes above and beyond my expectations. I can honestly say that I am impressed with the quality of services provided and feel rest assured that she is in safe, capable hands.”
