We all want to keep our independence for as long as possible. But there comes a time when our loved ones might need more help than they admit.
Our team of in-home care providers at Qualicare wants you to know the signs to look for when it comes to your loved one needing in-home care.
Knowing the Signs
Today, more and more seniors are wanting to age at home, and who can blame them? Fortunately, when you choose an in-home care provider like Qualicare, your loved one is able to receive the best of both worlds—quality care in the comfort of his or her own home.
Let's take a look at some ways your loved one might be telling you it is time for in-home care: trigger events.
Trigger events are what most people call the episodes that show that a loved one needs additional care. The following are a number of trigger events that your loved one might show, including:
- Losing a driver's license
- Inability to get around easily
- A fall
- A hospital stay
- A procedure
- A number of forgetful events
- Poor appearance due to grooming and dressing
- New fears
- Social isolation
- Forgetting to take medication regularly
- Declining health
