Do you have an elderly parent or grandparent living alone in Kansas City? Are you worried about their safety, comfort, or quality of life? If so, you can look to their home for clues as to how well they're doing. Clutter is one major sign that they may not be doing as well as you'd like and can hint at larger issues like depression or memory loss. It may also mean that your loved one would benefit from in-home elderly care from a trusted agency like Visiting Angels® Kansas City that can provide them with one-on-one support and meaningful companionship from the comfort of their home in Kansas City.
