How to tell if your loved one needs Care in the Home

  • not keeping up with personal hygiene or bathing
  • forgetting recent information and needing reminders
  • not drinking enough fluids which leads to dehydration, Urinary tract infections and even kidney stones if they drink a lot of coffee
  • loneliness when they are isolated and not eating well or interacting with others…leads to     depression and weight loss.
  • unexplained bruises or skin tears because they fell and were afraid to tell anyone, or forgot
  • go to the house and ring the doorbell and see how long does it take them to answer the door
  • then ask for a coffee and watch how they open the cabinets and just observe what they have difficulty with and is there any food in the fridge. You are checking their mental processing and physical coordination and strength
  • are they holding onto furniture as they walk because they don’t have good balance, how steady is their gait—this could lead to falls and a hip fracture is a big concern
  • Incontinence care-this can be overwhelming for families to do regularly day after day
