Knowing When: Indications Your Loved One May Require Care at Home


When the health, happiness, safety or well-being of someone we love is in question, it can bring us more concern than we have even for ourselves. Wanting the best for a loved one is natural, and wanting certain things to stay the same is as well. Yet, changing circumstances, life events and simply aging can alter how well one can manage daily living with full independence. It’s during times like these that paying close attention to the needs of those we care for and how well they are able to meet those needs is so important. Sometimes, added support is required to help them maintain wellness and manage everyday routines.

With Aqua Home Care, families seeking in-home care for their loved ones benefit from our reputable referral services. We specialize in matching caregivers who are compassionate, highly-trained, experienced and professional with those in need of care. We understand that it may be difficult to know for sure when someone you love is in need of assistance, especially if not living in the same house. Some indications to be mindful of when considering in-home care include:

  • Increased forgetfulness
  • Wandering
  • Missed medications
  • Poor self-care
  • Unkempt surroundings
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Irritability or aggression toward others
  • Limited mobility when moving around the house
  • Confusion
  • Disorientation
  • Increase in accidents/falls around the house
  • Unpaid bills
  • Driving difficulties
  • Concerning behaviors

While any one of these signs alone may raise some level of concern, worry increases when seen in combination with others. Seeking medical advice is always recommended when sudden changes, behaviorally or physically, arise. Consulting with a doctor allows for further investigation into the source of the issue along with a diagnosis. When daily living aid is needed, Aqua Home Care is ready to serve, support and search for the care your loved one needs and deserves. Keeping those you love near while they receive in-home care that effectively meets their everyday needs offers a feeling of calm and sense of relief for all. For quality service and peace of mind, our Aqua Home Care team is here for you and your loved one.
