Determining whether you or a loved one is in need of memory care can be stressful. But it doesn’t have to be. There are a number of things to consider—not only health and safety, but the opportunity to continue living a purposeful, engaged life.
Spending a few days with your parent, getting a closer look at their routines, can reveal things that aren’t as obvious with a phone call or a short visit. Below are some warning signs that may indicate they may be in need of additional support.
- Short-term memory loss – slow recall or information retrieval, forgetting to pay bills, leaving the stove on, getting lost on familiar routes
- Lack of follow-through on tasks
- Disorientation of time and place
- Loss of judgment – taking an illogical approach to problem solving
- Weight loss – not cooking for themselves or eating properly
- Falling frequently
- Avoiding issues – talking around subjects due to lack of understanding
- Medications – mixing up, running out, or taking incorrect dosages
- Poor housekeeping – dirty dishes and laundry, clutter
- Difficulty with home maintenance – avoiding yard work, living in only a few rooms of the house
- Fear of living alone – becoming overly dependent on loved ones
- Poor personal hygiene –bathing infrequently, wearing the same clothes
- No longer socializing, losing touch with friends
- Loss of interest in favorite activities
- Depression – excessive sleeping or crying
Changes can be subtle for some. Signs can vary and so can their level of intensity. If the signs are consistent and on-going, an assessment is in order.
