The holiday season is filled with greeting family and friends with the warmest welcome! While the holiday season spreads happiness to loved ones, it is also a time for us to recognize potential signs amongst our loved one who may not be able to perform everyday tasks and exchanges.
While these conversations are never easy, it’s important to have an honest and respectful conversation with your loved one about the concerns. This will reveal clear details on their daily living. This can lead to more open discussion around a better care plan. Here are just a few things to look for:
- Poor hygiene is a potential sign that a loved one may be struggling to maintain everyday tasks.
- Forgetting to take medication is another indicator that a loved one may need to seek out help to handle these responsibilities.
- For their safety, noticing difficulty with handling daily life activities will determine what kind of care your loved one should receive.
Anytime a loved one’s overall safety becomes questionable, it may be then time to take action and initiate those hard to have conversations.
Planning the future for your loved one requires time and research to find the right care plan and the right fit for an assisted living community. Include your loved one in the search process, so they can too determine what feels most comfortable.
Lastly, ask for referrals from other family members or friends and rely on them for their knowledgeable experience. Finding the right care for your loved one will help you and your family continue to enjoy the holidays knowing that your loved one is being cared for, properly.
