Know The Signs
It’s not always easy to know when your loved one needs extra help at home. Whether you live nearby or far away, you may not recognize your family member’s need for assistance until something serious happens like an accident or fall.
The good news is that when you know what to look for, you can recognize the early warning signs before your loved one experiences a traumatic event. Small inconsistencies such as wearing the same outfit two days in a row, maintaining an unusually cluttered house, or forgetting to go grocery shopping can point to losses in mobility or comprehension.
