Unsure if your loved one may need a Caregiver Service?
Whether it is a spouse, a parent, or even a friend, there are signs that perhaps your loved one may need services by a caregiver agency. There are many things to look for from physical and mental limitations, to their ability to keep up with housekeeping and finances. Difficulty walking or unsteadiness on their feet can lead to falls, which is a huge safety risk for an elderly person. Also, if you have noticed diminished driving skills or near misses while driving, elder care services may be something to look into to protect them, as well as others. A change in eating habits may be observed, or they may not be able or willing to cook for themselves anymore. There can be a lack of nutritious food available in their homes, and maybe spoiled food in their refrigerator. There may be a concern about the safety of them cooking for themselves, and good nutrition is manditory for their health.Grooming can become a problem for the elderly. If you have noticed his/her personal hygiene is not as good as it should be, this is another sign of your loved one is needing some help keeping up with their daily routines. Administering medications may also lead to the need for elder care services. This is critical for their health preservation and safety. Sometimes prescription drugs are very complicated to keep up with and the elderly need assistance in being reminded when their daily dosages should be taken. Housekeeping and paperwork may also be something that is not being kept up with for your loved one. There can be unopened mail and past due bills leading to mishandled finances, and added stress. Sometimes a loss of interest in socializing or activities that they typically enjoyed can be a warning. If they have difficulty concentrating, poor judgment, or even a personality change, it may be a sign of Dementia or Alzheimers disease. Confusion and struggling to complete familiar actions can be signs of the onset of one of these cognitive disorders. Your loved one may misplace familiar objects, become depressed and irritable, and be forgetful and lose memory. All of these are indicators that one may need elder care services.
