Does Your Elderly Loved One Need Help at Home in Richmond?
Most seniors enjoy living independently at home and being in control of their own lives. However, there may come a time when they need some assistance in order to safely remain there. Here are some warning signs to watch for when that time comes:
A Cupboard That’s Filled with Unhealthy Foods
If your senior family member is more often than not opting for convenient highly-processed foods, they may be having difficulty preparing meals and cooking. It can become difficult for some seniors to stand for long or chop or stir foods to prepare meals. A caregiver like the professionals available through Always Best Care can assist with meal planning, grocery shopping, and cooking healthy meals to help ensure your loved one is eating healthy, nutritious food.
An Unused Bath or Shower
As fears about falling grow or physical exertion becomes more of a challenge, some seniors will forgo showering, bathing, or other personal hygiene tasks. While this is understandable, it certainly isn’t the way you want your loved one to live. Caregivers at Always Best Care can help your senior loved one meet his or her personal hygiene needs.
If your senior family member is receiving multiple urgent pieces of mail or an increase in phone calls, it’s possible they may not be paying their bills or paying them on time. Sometimes as seniors get older staying on top of bills can be mentally challenging and draining. Having someone help with this process can ensure they are maintaining good credit and not at risk for having any utilities turned off.
