Learn more about the care at home services provided to you by Comfort Keepers of Ocala, FL
New Year’s resolutions are about to be upon us as January is right around the corner. One of the most important and often forgotten resolutions is that many families could truly benefit from home care for their senior loved one. If you are wondering if home care is the right choice for your loved one, the Comfort Keepers Care at home team will discuss, below, some signs that home care is a good choice. Let’s take a look.
An Increase in Forgetfulness
Unfortunately, as we age, we start to forget, but sometimes, increased forgetfulness can be a sign of a much bigger problem such as Alzheimer’s Disease. Forgetting appointments, how to care for themselves, or to eat are just some of the indications that your loved one may need home care services.
If you have started to notice that your loved one does not brush their hair or teeth for days or weeks or they do not smell good, it is time to explore home care services. The Comfort Keepers Care at home team wants you to know that sometimes, neglectfulness like this is caused from mobility issues and a caregiver can help ensure your loved one is well taken care of.
Change in Their Personality
If your beloved senior has no desire to participate in the hobbies that they once loved, then this can be a sign of their health deteriorating. If they are moody, hard to recognize, or abrasive, you may want to explore home care as an option to help them. Comfort Keepers Care at home services are designed to ensure that your loved one is able to receive the help he or she needs.
Chronic Health Condition
If your loved one has been diagnosed with a chronic health condition such as heart disease, diabetes, or even osteoporosis, then they will eventually require around the clock or full-time care. The Comfort Keepers Care at home team can assist with these services and make sure that your senior has the help needed when it comes to medication reminders, nutrition counting, mobility, and more.
If your loved one struggles in his or her every day life and you are concerned, now is the time to speak with them and discuss what options are available. Comfort Keepers Care at home services provide the one on one, specialized care your beloved senior requires. Call our office today to learn more.
