Signs that an older adult might need assisted living:
It’s not always easy to tell when your parent or another loved one needs more help. The following warning signs may indicate that it’s time for a talk about assisted living:
- The refrigerator is empty or filled with spoiled food or your loved one is losing weight. These may be signs that they aren’t eating well because shopping or cooking is difficult.
- You notice frequent bruises, although your loved one may try to cover them up. This may be a sign of falling, or mobility and balance problems.
- Your loved one wears the same clothes over and over again or neglects their personal hygiene. This can indicate that doing laundry and bathing is physically challenging.
- The house and yard isn’t as clean and tidy as it used to be.
- Your loved one forgets things, such as doctor’s appointments or when to take their medication. This may be due to memory loss.
- Your loved one seems depressed. Depression is common in seniors who are isolated and alone.
- You notice strange or inappropriate behaviour. For example, your loved one may dress inappropriately for the weather. This can be a sign that they are experiencing confusion.
