It’s not uncommon for parents or relatives to have difficulty acknowledging or asking for help, as they get older. No one likes the thought of losing their independence and for many; the hesitancy comes from fear of being a burden or bothering someone. This is especially true for aging parents, therefore it is important for you to recognize the warning signs that your parents’ safety and well-being may be at risk.
Take Notice of Changes
Whenever you visit your parents take note of changes in subtle details such as your parents demeanor, behaviors, and habits. Look for interactive changes such as frequent mood swings or irritability. Have you noticed differences in their sleeping or eating routines? Confusion is another telltale sign that your parent needs assistance. For example, look for uncertainty in following through on once very familiar activities or failing to remember a frequently traveled route, etc.
