For a variety of reasons, older adults frequently require home care and homemaking services. However, independence is a sensitive and, at times, a non-negotiable topic for them, deciding to begin home care or any other type of care difficult. For many elderly people, the thought of asking for assistance causes a great deal of anxiety.
To avoid misunderstandings and arguments with your elderly loved ones, keep an eye out for these signs that indicate an urgent need for caregiver services.
- Frequent falls or compromised balance
- Confusing daytime and nighttime
- Recent hospitalization or recovery from a surgery
- Difficulty eating and drinking without assistance
- Wandering from home; getting lost
- Neglect in personal hygiene
- Minor health issues
- Dwindling social life
