Safety and Aging in Place
Evaluating Function and Safety
It is not uncommon for caregivers visit a loved one and then realize there is something different going on. Maybe the older adults is not taking care of their home as they've done in the past or their hygiene has changed. Maybe their mood has changed or their interest in participating in activities they've enjoyed in the past has decreased. There may be some changes exhibited that they have not shared with you or possibly they haven't identified the changes themselves.
Caregivers Can Help
If a concern arises, caregivers can assess a loved ones situation without being overly intrusive or obvious. By simply making observations caregivers can pick up on many cues and determine if function or safety are a concern and eventually need to be addressed.
