4 Tips To Know When Seniors  Need Help at Home Warning Signs that a Senior Could
Benefit from Assistance
Aging can be challenging not only relating to our health but also our ability to perform daily tasks and to live the life we deserve. When we’re younger, we often take for granted the ability to easily button a shirt without arthritic fingers or the capacity to walk safely from the bathroom to the living room without tripping over an area rug and getting hurt.

#1 Difficulty with Daily Tasks
When it becomes challenging to complete essential tasks like driving to the grocery store, shopping, or preparing meals, seniors may need help at home. It’s not uncommon for older individuals to forget to eat or drink, and they can quickly become malnourished or dehydrated. They may also need help with bathing or getting around the house safely, which necessitates additional outside help.

#2 Driving
As seniors age, they may find it intimidating to drive in heavy traffic, or they may be apprehensive about their reaction times. At times, it’s essential to drive or find a way to shop, pick up medications, or visit the doctor; when seniors are unable to drive safely, this is a definitive sign that they need help with chores and errands or getting to an appointment safely.

# 3 Social Activity
Many older individuals may become uncomfortable and begin to pull back from social activities that they used to love. This often happens because they feel embarrassed about being forgetful, or they become nervous in social situations due to feelings of inadequacy. It’s vital to maintain socializing, so in-home services will give them something to look forward to as they can talk with their private duty assistant while they are helping in other ways around the home.

#4 Medication Management
Seniors often find it confusing to sort through all of their medication and to remember which pills they should take at what times. Having someone there to help them keep things organized and to make certain they take the right medication at the right time is essential.
