As parents age, it brings about concerns for their health, safety, and well-being, as well as a myriad of questions about their lives.  Often times seniors are reluctant to receiving assistance in their daily care, and loved ones do not want to think of their parent being an age where assistance is needed.  So, how does one know if their senior parent or loved one needs home care services?  Look out for the warning signs below:

  •      Sudden weight loss
  •      Difficulty getting up from a seated position
  •      Difficulty moving throughout the home
  •      Infrequent showering and/or unpleasant body odor
  •      Excessive clutter throughout the house
  •      Spoiled/rotten food in the refrigerator or pantry
  •      Wearing the same clothes repeatedly
  •      Mails and bills are piled up
  •      Missing important appointments
  •      Growing social isolation
  •      Forgetfulness or memory loss
  •      Signs of depression (crying, lack of interest, feeling of hopelessness, etc.)

If your parents or loved one is facing any one of these issues, it may be time to strongly consider home care services, which would allow them to stay in their home while being taken care of, ensuring the highest quality of life.  Please contact Ally Independence, LLC at 1(800) 630-6156 with any questions or to schedule your free In-Home Assessment.
