Signs Your Loved One in Amarillo Might Need Home Care

Provider of home care in Amarillo with elderly patient

The holiday season is a time for family. It's a chance to be with the people you love and catch up with those you may not get to see as often as you'd like. It's also a good time to check up on elderly relatives who might not receive visitors often. While you're making the rounds this holiday season, taking a moment to look carefully at your relative's home and appearance can give you valuable clues about their well-being. It may be that things aren't running as smoothly as they've been saying in calls or letters. It's an important opportunity to assess whether or not they may need more help at home. It may be that this season, what they really need is home care from Visiting Angels® Amarillo in order to continue living with the independence they want and the peace of mind you crave. 

Spotting the Signs that Home Care in Amarillo is Needed

Whether it's after a big meal or after-dinner games, taking the time to observe the state of your loved one and their surroundings can help you to get a clearer picture of their daily life, and whether home care from Visiting Angels Amarillo is something that they could benefit from having. Maybe they've stopped attending social clubs or are paying less attention to the cleanliness of their home. Any of these signs can mean that your loved one isn't doing as well as you'd like them to and that this year, the best gift you could give them is our care. 

Things to keep an eye out for in your loved one's home include:

  • Clutter blocking entrances or making rooms unusable
  • Bumps or bruises on your loved one which can't be explained
  • Mail unopened or unanswered mail piling up
  • A decline in their personal hygiene or grooming habits
  • Significant changes in their mood or attitude
