Q. How do I know if my loved one needs in-home care?
There are different situations that may prompt someone to look for extra help and care. Some just use home care services for companionship, while others need a lot of help with all of their daily needs. If you are wondering if your loved one is beginning to need care here are some things to ask yourself:
- Does she live alone or stay home by herself most of the time?
- Is there a fear of getting in and out of the shower?
- Is standing for long periods of time becoming difficult?
- Has memory loss become more prominent?
- Is there an end of life need that needs to be met?
- Are there medications that may get skipped intentionally or unintentionally?
- Is she having trouble driving?
- Are you getting repetitive phone calls and questions throughout the day?
These are some signs that your family member might benefit from the services home care can provide.
