10 Signs Your Loved One May Need A Caregiver

A Tristar Caregiver is trained to help when needed letting your loved one keep their independence and self-worth. It’s a proven fact that seniors spending hours alone every day can develop more health issues reducing their quality of life. A quality caregiver can provide assistance and companionship keeping seniors mentally sharp and healthy.

Below is a list of indicators you and family members can use to assess a loved one’s condition, identifying potential areas of concern can indicate that a loved one needs assistance:

  1. Medical Condition. A recently diagnose disease, illness or injury could affect your loved one’s ability to function on a daily basis.
  2. Driving. If your loved one’s vision, hearing and/or reflexes are impaired, this may increase their risk for being involved in a car accident.
  3. Food/Nutrition. Take note of your loved one’s diet to ensure they are eating well-balanced meals and maintaining a steady weight. Is the food in the refrigerator within its expiration dates?
  4. Hygiene. Take note of your loved one’s overall appearance, smell and ability to wear suitable clothing for the weather. Are the bed linens, bath towels and laundry clean?
  5. Behavior. Is your loved one anxious, irritable or depressed? Do they have difficulty remembering names, places and current events?
  6. Daily Tasks. Are basic tasks, such as going grocery shopping and preparing meals, becoming overly challenging or time-consuming for your loved one?
  7. Medication. Is your loved one able to manage his or her medications properly including dosage, frequency and changes to prescriptions? Are prescriptions being refilled in a timely fashion?
  8. Finances. Is your loved one able to manage his or her personal finances, pay bills and balance the checkbook?
  9. Mail. Is the mail stacking up? Do you see past due or delinquency notices?
  10. Safety. Does your loved one remember to turn off appliances and extinguish candles or cigarettes?
If you are beginning to have concerns with your loved one’s quality of life, it may be time to start taking a more active role. Begin with sharing your concerns, and let them know that your priority is always their safety, well-being, and comfort.
