Your mom has always been strong, independent, and there to help at a moment’s notice. But lately, you’ve noticed a change. Maybe it’s the slight pause she takes when standing up. Or the clutter that has taken over her once-pristine kitchen. If your senior loved one is having trouble with everyday tasks, Visiting Angels® Sterling Heights is here to help with compassionate non medical home care. 

10 Signs Your Loved One May Need Non Medical Home Care in Sterling Heights

You call every week and visit when you can, but the hustle and bustle of raising a family and working full-time make it challenging to check in on your loved one as often as you would like. When you ask how she’s doing, she says everything’s fine, but lately, you’ve noticed a slight hesitation that makes you wonder if she’s holding back.

Whether it’s due to pride, embarrassment, or worry about having to move to a nursing home, it’s common for seniors to downplay their need for help. In many cases, it’s up to family members to be observant, ask questions, and offer support. 

If you are visiting your loved one in Sterling Heights this holiday season, look for signs they may be ready for the assistance of non medical home care, including:

  1. Sudden and unexplained mood swings

  2. Clutter and hoarding in the home

  3. Keeping spoiled or expired food

  4. Gaining or losing a noticeable amount of weight

  5. Difficulty walking, balancing, or getting up from a seated position

  6. Bad breath, body odor, and a disheveled appearance

  7. Dents, scratches or other new damage to their car

  8. Depression or pulling away from family and friends

  9. A change in spending habits, falling for scams or giving away money

  10. Confusion, irritability, or forgetting familiar names or faces
