Do mental health professionals ever make house calls?

Mom is depressed, diagnosed by her doctor. However she has a very hard time getting out of the house. She is in a wheelchair because of post polio syndrome and she finds moving around very painful.

Have you spoken with her physician about your concerns? This would be a good first start. He/she may be aware of someone that does make house calls.

The other option may be to hire a private Geriatric Care Manager. Their credentials vary but most are RN or Social Workers. Again, her physician may work with one in the area and be able to refer you.
