Recognizing that a loved one can no longer care for themselves independently can be tricky, especially if they're afraid or embarrassed to ask for help. If your loved one is coping with a change in ability and can no longer live at home without assistance, essential personal home care from Visiting Angels® Little Rock can help.

Signs Your Parent Could Benefit From Essential Personal Home Care in Little Rock

Your dad has always enjoyed living on his own. But lately, you've noticed subtle changes that have you concerned about his health and safety. When you bring it up, he says everything is fine and changes the subject, but you worry he's holding something back.

This scenario is more common than you might think. Some seniors are embarrassed to ask family members for help with personal tasks such as bathing, dressing, and using the toilet. Others feel angry they can no longer care for themselves or worry they'll have to move to a nursing home, so they struggle in silence. 

So how do you know if it's the right time to suggest essential personal home care from Visiting Angels Little Rock? When visiting your loved one over the holidays, look for changes in their usual appearance, behavior, and physical ability, including:

  • Weight loss that wasn't intended

  • Mood swings, depression, or self-isolation

  • Difficulty with walking, balance, or getting up from a chair

  • Poor hygiene habits, including bad breath, wearing soiled clothing, and body odor

  • Bruises and other injuries that indicate they've had a fall at home

  • Forgetting familiar faces and names

  • Misplacing items in unusual places
