When Is A Caregiver Needed
 

Everyone selects home care for various reasons.

The keys are to recognize when help is needed and how to select the right care provider.

The following is a list of questions that can help you make the decision on whether you should consider in-home care.

  • Has there been a recent emotional or medical crisis?
  • Are there frequent hospitalizations? 
  • Does the individual bathe less often, or not at all?
  • Are pills left over or running out too soon?
  • Is medication found lying out?
  • Does the individual need help walking?
  • Is he/she verbally or physically abusive?
  • Is he/she becoming more forgetful?
  • Have there been recent falls?
  • Is your loved one having problems sleeping?
  • Has there been recent weight loss?
  • Has he/she lost interest in eating?
  • Is his/her hearing or vision affecting the ability to function?
  • Is he/she smokes, are there burn marks?
  • Is your loved one able to do errands alone?
  • Is clothing being changed daily?
  • Is your loved one content to just sit in a chair?
  • Is there less participation in conversations?
  • Are there scorch marks on the pot holders or dish towels?
  • Are there signs of burnt pans on the stove?
  • Is routine house cleaning not being done?
  • Have social activities stopped or diminished?

 

AS A CAREGIVER

  • Are you becoming worn out?
  • Do you miss your doctor appointments?
  • Do you find yourself snapping at everyone?
  • Do you have high levels of anxiety or fear?
  • Are you withdrawing from friends and family?
  • Are you feeling a resentment toward your loved one?
  • Are you feeling guilty?
  • Do you overreact to commonplace accidents?

 

If you answered yes to even one of these questions, perhaps it is time to consider in-home care.
