How do I know when it’s time to get help for Mom or Dad?
Admitting the need for assistance—and accepting it—is not easy for people as they age. So, how will you know when your aging parent needs help at home? One thing is certain: Mom and Dad aren’t likely to be the ones who tell you!
Some of the things to look for:
· Difficulty performing Activities of Daily Living
· Changes in Physical Function & Appearance
· Changes in Behavioral & Mental Status
· Neglecting Household Responsibilities
· Changes in Cognition, Memory, & Judgement
