There is a driving force from within that fuels our wanting the best for those we cherish. Knowing that the health, happiness, safety and well-being of our loved ones are all in good standing brings reassurance and peace of mind. Yet, changes in circumstances, unexpected life events and simply the process of aging can alter how well one can manage their own daily living with full independence. It is during times like these that paying close attention to the needs of those we care for, along with how well they are able to meet those needs, is so important. Sometimes additional everyday help is required for completing daily routines and maintaining wellness.
Here at Aqua Home Care, we use our trusted resources to help individuals and their families find quality in-home support. We specialize in matching compassionate, highly-trained, experienced and professional caregivers from our registry 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 when signs may be more noticeable. Concerning signs to pay attention to can include:
- Increased forgetfulness
- Missed medications
- Poor self-care
- Unkempt surroundings
- Unexplained weight loss
- Irritability or aggression toward others
- Limited mobility when moving around the house
- Increase in accidents/falls around the house
- Unpaid bills
- Driving difficulties
- Concerning behaviors
While any one of these signs by itself may raise some level of concern, it can be even more worrisome when seen regularly and/or in combination with others. Seeking medical advice is always recommended when sudden changes in behavior or physical changes arise. Consulting with a doctor allows for further investigation into the source of the issue along with a diagnosis. It may be discovered that a change in medication or a lifestyle change can help, so seeing a medical professional is imperative. If it is determined that daily living aid is needed, our Aqua Home Care team 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. When signs prove to mean daily support is necessary, know that we at Aqua Home Care are here for you and your loved one.
