Once safety is a concern there are many things to consider: Is your loved one taking their medication as prescribed? Are you sure? Is it timely? Are they eating a nutritional meal and drinking enough fluids?
Are the things they use on a daily basis up on the counter tops and not under cabinets? Throw rugs; although they are decorative are they a fall risk? Safety first!
Isolation causes depression and stress which leads to illness. Is your loved one sleeping more than usual, not caring about their appearance? This can be a sign of depression. We all need a purpose. When your loved one is able to share their experiences and days with people their own age they seem to thrive and grow.
Our professional advisors can also help determine if isolation and safety are issues that may need addressing. We are passionate advocates for seniors and their needs by providing a complete senior living resource service.
