Senior Care Matters

Most people prefer the idea of staying in their homes as they age. However, care needs can change over time. Some of those needs can be met while remaining in the home.  The Pew Research Center estimates that 1 in every 8 American adults between the ages of 40 and 60 is raising children of their own and caring for aging parents. Plus, between 7 and 10 million adults care for their parents from afar. Caregivers report their own emotional stress, physical strain, or financial hardships as a result of care-giving responsibilities. Evaluating circumstances periodically can help to assure an individual’s safety and comfort along the way.

Care Matters can assist in determining the appropriate level of care that you or a loved one may require. A full assessment of what current daily needs are as they are related to certain activities can be addressed.

Care Matters recognizes certain illnesses and afflictions are more common to seniors. As such, we provide special training to our caregivers on communicating with persons who have Alzheimer’s and related Dementia, Hearing Loss and Aphasia, which ensures a higher level of care for our clients.

Sure-fire warning signs that a senior needs more help: Agingcare.com suggests that if an adult child or caregiver notices certain warning signs, the senior probably requires assistance on a more regular basis. Some signs to look for are:

  • Spoiled food that doesn’t get thrown away
  • Missing important appointments
  • Difficulty with walking, balance and mobility
  • Uncertainty and confusion when performing once-familiar tasks
  • Forgetfulness
  • Unpleasant body odor or noticeable decline in grooming habits and personal care
  • Dirty house, extreme clutter and dirty laundry piling up
  • Stacks of unopened mail or an overflowing mailbox
  • Late payment notices, bounced checks and calls from bill collectors
  • Poor diet or weight loss
  • Loss of interest in hobbies and activities
  • Changes in mood or extreme mood swings
  • Forgetting to take medications – or taking more than the prescribed dosage
  • Diagnosis of dementia or early onset Alzheimer’s
  • Unexplained dents and scratches on a car
