Signs Your Loved One Needs a Live-In Caregiver, Farmington, Connecticut

Whether it’s a family member or a beloved friend or neighbor, there comes a time when those around you might need help but don’t know how to ask for it. If you suspect that an elderly loved one would benefit from having a live-in caregiver, here are three signs you might be correct.

Limited Mobility

If your loved one has recently experienced a bad accident, leaving them physically impaired, or has simply become much less mobile, a caregiver can help. After making sure the house is as accessible to your loved one as possible, a caregiver can help them go about their daily routine while avoiding things like heavy lifting or walking to the store.

Mental Changes

Consult with a doctor about your loved one’s mental health, and if they’re cleared to continue living in their home, call a caregiver. Having a designated live-in caregiver on hand can help them maintain a constant in their life, and they’ll have someone around when they have questions or forget to take medicine on their own.

Impaired Senses

A live-in caregiver is a great solution for those beginning to lose their senses. Whether it’s sight, vision, or something else, your loved one is still capable of taking care of themselves, but they have a new set of challenges to overcome. Having someone there with them for everyday tasks will alleviate stress and make the home a more calming environment for your loved one.
