Signs You Need Some Help – When Does My Parent Need Assisted Living Services?
Assisted living is a unique type of living style for seniors. A person will live in a private or semi-private apartment home. They will get to come and go and engage in life the way they would like to, which can include having friends over to talk or visiting with others. They can head out to the fitness facilities to get in a workout. In this type of environment, a person is still very independent. They can manage most of their health and daily living needs.
However, they also have help in some areas of daily living. For example, in this type of environment, team members often provide housekeeping services. Residents do not have to worry about home maintenance – cutting the grass and cleaning the gutters is no longer something they have to worry about. They don’t have to do the dishes or even make their own meals if they do not want to do so.
What Are Some Signs They May Benefit from Assisted Living?
When you ask, “When does my parent need assisted living,” you really do have to consider your loved one’s specific needs and their goals for retirement. Some indications that they may need help include:
- Not making meals for themselves
- Struggling to keep the home clean
- Feeling isolated or unable to go out like they used to
- Keeping up with home maintenance is straining
- Difficulty with medication management
- Having a hard time with personal hygiene and other self-care tasks
- They constantly need help with tasks around the home (which may indicate an emotional need for help, too)
If you see these signs in your loved one, it is very important to seek out help. This is when our team can help.
