When is it time to get help with memory care?
Deciding when to get help with memory care can be a tough choice and is one of the most important topics trending in senior health right now. You may notice the senior in your life begins a decline in physical exercise, is exhibiting difficulty with mental tasks and memory, and is having trouble communicating effectively. When one’s healthy lifestyle is compromised, and activities of daily living begin to require consistent help (dressing, physical exercise, brushing teeth, eating, etc.), these are indications that it is time to seek help regarding the memory care of your loved one.
Early signs that the older adult in your life may be experiencing the onset of memory care needs include: forgetting to do daily tasks, being confused by their surroundings, difficulty with numbers, changes in speech, unexplained mood swings, difficulty with judgment, and difficulty with or changes in sleep pattern. While these changes may be alarming, seeking quality care is important in preserving the healthy lifestyle of your senior loved one. If the senior in your life is experiencing any of these symptoms, consider seeking in-home memory care assistance to help aid in senior health.
