I think there are , if you are under a mental health team NHS
they would have an obligation to house you
and depending on your condition
might not necessarily be in a schizophrenic community
im not even sure if there is a schizophrenic community actually

I think more likely the housing would be
around people with a variety of issues

What a good question, I actually don't know the answer to that, there ought to be specialist care home for seniors who might be fr aigile, and unbalance, and unsteady in that respect. You've got me there Kailash on that one.

Nice to meet you.

Welcome aboard to MHF.

I know of one psychiatric hospital which has a number of geriatric units, as unfortunately not a lot of nursing homes and aged care facilities in my country don’t really cover those with mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar. These units are few and far between though. Given, Australia has an aging population, so much more needs to be done to accommodate these people.

That is my greatest fear that one day my family may not be able to cope and I would have to go to a home for.the.mentally.ill I try my best to do things to help myself with the hope of getting well and living a happy and healthy life but the harder I try the worse I feel because I keep getting everything wrong

I have a friend who actually wants to go into a home. He says he will get looked after and he likes the idea of it. Myself I'm sceptical a little.

There are plenty of homes for the elderly and other groups e.g people with learning difficulties and people with dementia
