After the Holidays Families Recognize Changing Needs of Aging Parents and Loved Ones
Date:12/31/2009

REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- It's a fact: each and every January senior living communities see an increase in inquiries from concerned family members looking for help and answers as to how to best care for an aging loved one that needs assistance. The surge comes post holiday, a time when adult children come face to face with the increasing and changing needs of parents and family members. Aegis Living, a national leader in senior assisted living and memory care communities, works with families looking for help and guidance to best answer the needs of everyone involved.

"The holidays are often the time that the reality of where a parent or loved one is health wise becomes all too apparent," said Dwayne Clark, chairman and CEO of Aegis Living. "When a visit home raises concerns about the quality of life for an aging parent or family member, it is important and all right to follow through and evaluate the situation. At this time it may be a good idea to determine what accommodations or care would be best at this time in their life."

When deciding whether to seek the care of a senior living community, consider these questions.

  • How are they emotionally? Are there changes in their activity level and mood? Are they seeing friends and partaking in activities they have loved for years?
  • Has there been significant weight loss? Unexplained weight loss could indicate a major health problem.
  • What shape is the home in? If the home is in need of repair and un-kept, these can be signs that more help is needed.
  • Are they taking care of themselves physically? Look to see if they are keeping up with basic daily routines such as bathing, brushing teeth and wearing clean clothes.
  • Are they having difficulty moving around their home? Having trouble walking or being unsteady on their feet puts them at risk for falling and injuring themselves.
