Any time is a good time to check on you loved ones! Visiting gives adult children an opportunity to evaluate their loved one’s general welfare while they are checking in and saying hello.
You might be surprised at what you find if you haven’t been there for awhile.
Say Hello and Take Inventory of the Situation
Next time you happen to be at their home, even if it’s only during the holidays, take an inventory check regarding their living conditions and their overall health. Observe their mental and physical abilities. Do you notice any forgetfulness or inability to do certain things for themselves? Are there things around the house they may not be able to do themselves anymore? Is the home safe and free of tripping hazards and safety issues?
After your mental observation, does it worry you that they are living alone? Do you see signs that they might need some added assistance to remain in their home alone in 2021? Over 92% of seniors want to “age at home”, so with this in mind there are many “helps” that can be implemented to ensure the resident and family members that they are in a good and safe environment.
We wish you and your loved ones a safe and healthy year and urge you to take steps now to ensure your family member’s stay healthy when living alone. We often hear disheartening regrets that family members wish they would have taken safety measures in their loved one’s home before there was an incident. Fast response time in an emergency is key to speedy recovery and allowing the resident to continue living in their home again.
Fear of Regret is a Powerful Motivator
