3 Signs Your Loved One Needs Assisted Living, Heath, Ohio

Caring for a loved one in your family, be it a parent or grandparent, is a responsibility that takes devotion, commitment, and patience. But if they suffer from health issues or their needs become overwhelming, taking care of them becomes exponentially more difficult. It may actually become more beneficial for them to receive help from an assisted living facility.

At The Chapel Grove Inn, providing senior housing for residents throughout Licking County, OH, the team outlines three signs your loved one might need assisted living:

  • Aggressive Behavior: When loved ones age and become less self-sufficient, they can become frustrated at their need to rely on others, taking out their exasperation through verbal outbursts or even physical violence. For those needing dementia care, these behaviors can be even more prominent. When the act of caregiving becomes marred by resentment, it may be better off to place your loved one in an assisted care facility.
  • assisted livingIncreasing Medical & Physical Needs: It’s understandable to want to care for a loved one at home without the need for assisted living for as long as possible. But when the level of care they require is out of your realm of comfort and ability, seeking out senior housing may be the most sensible route to take. An assisted living facility is well equipped with medical and mental health resources to handle dementia care, and keep your loved one and your family safe from physical and emotional harm.
  • Overwhelming Caregiver Stress: If a loved one needs care, it takes a significant toll on the family providing care. The act of seeing to your loved one’s eating, sleeping, and living habits can be extremely draining; you can neglect yourself and the other members of your family in the process. If this feeling becomes too overwhelming, or if you find yourself experiencing your own feelings of depression as a result of stress and isolation, it may be time to think about assisted living for your loved one.

Considering assisted living can be an emotionally difficult prospect. For more information on how to look for a suitable facility, and to make an appointment for a tour at The Chapel Grove Inn, call (740) 522-4663 or visit the website.
