3 Signs Your Parent Needs Home Elderly Care, Henrietta, New York

Choosing professional care for an aging parent can be a difficult decision. You want to go with the safest option, as well as the one that will make your loved one happiest. Home elderly care is an increasingly popular choice among rising in-patient healthcare costs. But how do you know when your loved one needs home care?

How to Tell Your Loved One May Need Home Elderly Care

1. Poor Personal Hygiene

An elderly parent may stop their usual personal grooming habits because they’re physically unable to perform tasks like combing their hair or showering. They may also stop because they are suffering from memory loss due to dementia or Alzheimer’s, and they simply forget to perform these daily activities.  

2. Struggling to Move or Stand Up

A person with decreased mobility is at an increased risk for falls. Whether they are struggling to climb and descend stairs or they struggle to stand up from a chair, it’s unsafe to allow a loved one to live alone under these circumstances. A home elderly care provider can help them move safely and comfortably from room to room when needed. They can also run errands and take steps to make your loved one’s home as safe as possible

3. Social Isolation
