When Does Mom or Dad Need Assisted Living?

Watching parents age can provoke all kinds of new questions. Can they care for themselves without help? How will I know? What kind of help is best? And of course, how can I talk to them about it? Here are some key indicators to help you sort out what kind of support your aging parents may need.

Weight Loss

Are your loved ones eating? While missing meals can be a sign of depression or dementia, the most common reason behind it is that shopping for and preparing meals has become too much for them to handle. Getting some assistance with meals could be a huge relief.

Poor Hygiene

Is your loved one looking less put-together? Are they wearing dirty clothes or skipping baths? Sometimes fear of falling in the tub or shower can cause them to neglect their personal hygiene, and it may be an indicator that personal care is needed.

Home Cleanliness

When you visit your loved one, in what kind of state do you find their home? Are there piles of clutter and dirty dishes? If your formerly fastidious loved one is now living differently, it’s a sign that their abilities and needs are changing.

Forgetfulness

Is your loved one often and easily confused? Have they overdrawn a bank account or missed a bill payment? Do you often need to redirect them? Noticeable cognitive decline can relate to problems with medication management or several other factors that professional caregivers can help to address.

Ebenezer Cares

If you find yourself in need of help caring for an aging loved one, Ebenezer can provide support and resources, including care management and coordination, care partner support groups, care assessments, our Caregiver Assurance program, adult day programs, and overall support and guidance with navigating senior care options.
