Caring for an aging loved one can be challenging. Between caring for your immediate family, working and handling the stresses of everyday life, looking after an aging loved one with health issues is for many a task that requires outside support.
Seven Signs Someone May Need Home Health Care
1. Confusion, depression, apathy and forgetfulness
Has their personality changed? Have they stopped participating in their favorite activities?
2. Dehydration, poor nutrition
This can be especially dangerous if they are not eating properly.
3. Lack of personal hygiene, incontinence
Has he or she stopped bathing and/or have an odor indicating loss
of bladder control?
4. Evidence of unsafe driving
Being able to drive is a privilege but if the person is putting
themselves or others in danger, it can lead to a terrible accident.
5. Wandering and falling
Is the person unsteady on his/her feet? Do you worry that they might
fall and hurt themselves when they are alone?
6. Not taking medications
Are they forgetting or worse yet, not caring anymore?
7. Disorientation
Do they look confused or say or do things that don’t make any sense?
