Signs Your Loved One Might Need Home Care in Edmonton

From battling crowds at the mall to battling icy roads, the holidays can be as hectic as they are joyous. As you get swept up in the whirlwind of the festive season, though, don’t forget about the seniors in your life. The holidays are the perfect time to drop in on a loved one you don’t get a chance to see throughout the year. Not only will a visit bring joy, visiting your loved one’s home will give you a chance to learn more about their day-to-day life and determine whether they could benefit from the services at Senior Home Care By Angels® Edmonton.

Does Your Loved One in Edmonton Need Home Care?

As you visit your loved one in Edmonton this holiday season, keep an eye out for signs they are having a hard time living at home on their own. Your loved one won’t always tell you they’re struggling, and if you mostly keep in touch with them through phone calls and letters, you might not be aware of the challenges they face.

Some signs your loved one in Edmonton, Spruce Grove, St. Albert, Sherwood Park, or throughout the Greater Edmonton Area might need home care include:

  • A Change in Physical Ability. Balance and mobility issues, trouble standing from sitting, weight loss, fatigue.
  • A Decline in Cognitive Functioning. Forgetfulness, getting confused or disoriented while completing familiar tasks, listlessness, mood swings.
  • Neglect Around the House. Food left in the fridge, little or no food, clutter and dirt, unopened mail.
  • Poor Hygiene. Stains and marks on clothes, not bathing regularly, messy hair, a noticeable odor.
