When to Get Help at Home for Your Aging Parents

Most seniors want to age in place. Sometimes, that’s easier said than done, especially when a person’s safety is a concern. The reality is that most seniors will need assistance with activities of daily living at some point in their life. Knowing when help is needed allows seniors to stay safe and strong for longer! So, what home care services do seniors need the most?

The time to recommend care is when mobility becomes an issue, and your parent is unable to safely move about the house. Some other signs to watch for are when your parent is having difficulty maintaining good hygiene, proper nutrition, and managing medications.

How can our Aging in Place Care Program help?
