How do you decide if it’s time for Long-Term Care?

Here are some key factors to look for when determining if you or a loved one needs Long-Term Care:

  • Physical Signs
    Changes in weight, strength, energy, and balance can be dangerous to a senior, especially if he or she is living alone. This can also complicate actions like dressing and eating. The nursing aids residents with these actions in long-term care.
  • Increasing Difficulty Managing Daily Activities
    With age, daily activities can be harder to manage. Some of the daily activities that we often do without thinking – to an elder person, might be more difficult than before. If you suspect your loved one is having increased difficulty with any of the following, expressing your concern is important.

    • Dressing
    • Bathing
    • Shopping
    • Laundry
    • Medication Management
    • Cleaning
  • Mental Signs
    Memory loss or confusion could be signs of dementia and should not be ignored. If a senior is continually having trouble with memory, this can turn into a safety issue. Additionally, confusion about names, dates, and places that were once common can be frustrating and demoralizing.

    • Inability to use the bathroom or shower and forgetting to brush their teeth are detrimental to health and are other signs that they need long-term care.
    • If the house is in disarray or if things are strangely out of place, then this might signal that long-term care is required.
