Changes in a loved one's ability can be a natural part of aging or the result of an illness or disease. Either way, these changes can make aging at home difficult, or in some cases, dangerous. If you're loved one is living independently and could use a helping hand, call Visiting Angels® Newport News. We offer customized non medical home care that gives seniors the support they need to age in place safely and brings peace of mind to families. 

Signs Your Parent Could Benefit From Non-Medical Home Care in Newport News

When a senior parent has a sudden change in physical ability, such as no longer being able to drive or recovering from a hospital stay, it's easy to recognize their need for help. But subtle physical or mental changes can be trickier to spot. 

As the holidays approach, you may have more opportunity to spend time with your loved one. Be observant and look for signs that can indicate they need help. The following list is an excellent place to start:

  1. A change in personal hygiene
  2. Extreme mood swings
  3. Hoarding food 
  4. New scratches or dents in their car
  5. Unopened mail 
  6. Unpaid bills
  7. Spoiled food 
  8. A noticeable change in weight
  9. Excessive shopping or spending
  10. Difficulty walking or getting around
