But with 36 million seniors living in the U.S. and the elderly population projected to double, caring for a senior loved one is a reality most people will face. That’s why at Senior Helpers we advise family members to learn the signs your senior relative needs assistance.<br />It’s much better to arrange for help for an elderly family member while they can still be part of the process rather than during a crisis because it gives everyone time to make thoughtful decisions. Seniors often believe getting help means being moved out of their house and that’s where the resistance to any kind of help comes in, but many times in-home care is a better option.<br />At Senior Helpers we encourage people to remember to respect a senior family member’s pride and dignity when discussing the need for assistance. Approach the topic with respect and understanding and express concern for the family member’s safety. The warning signs could be an indication of many issues so if there is a concern it is important to contact a doctor.<br />10 Warning Signs a Senior Relative Needs Assistance<br />The house is cold, the telephone is cut off.<br />Losing track in a conversation, forgetting the names of children, grandchildren, the day of the week, etc.<br />The death of a spouse.<br />The refrigerator and cupboards are half empty even though you know the relative can still get out.<br />Personal hygiene is poor.<br />Constantly making excuses when asked to go somewhere or do something, or wanting to be alone.<br />Sudden weight loss.<br />Never cleaning or delaying home repairs.<br />Failure to take prescribed medications.<br />Behavior changes.<br />The best way to keep track of a senior family members situation is to keep in touch with them and this is one time where being nosy is justified. Visit or call often and use one of the warning signs as a way to approach the topic if needed.<br />About Senior Helpers:<br />Senior Helpers provides many in-home, caregiving services for the elderly in the Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan, Westport, Milford and Orange area.  We offer extensive in-home health care services for seniors who embrace their independence and the personal dignity that goes with it.  Our in-home care services are provided by bonded and insured caregivers all of whom pass a national background check.<br />If a senior family member needs in-home care services in Lower and Upper Coastal Fairfield County, Milford and Orange, we are an excellent choice with exemplary references.  In-home care is the compassionate choice for your elderly loved ones' continued independent living.
