What to Do When Your Senior Isn’t Safe at Home

What to Do When Your Senior Isn't Safe at Home blog banner

There may come a time when it isn't in your loved one's best interest to stay at home. Whether it's due to a physical or mental condition, the day may come when it's no longer possible for your family member to live by themselves or even for you or an at-home caregiver to handle their needs. When your loved one's safety or health is in jeopardy, it is an urgent matter; there is no time to wait.

Although COVID-19 has been a cause for concern for many people, it doesn't erase your love one's critical needs. For many of us, we know our parents would have done anything to keep us safe and cared for. You may now be responsible for your parent's safety and care. Moving them into a senior care community may be the best option for their overall wellbeing. The following are indications that your loved one shouldn't be living independently:

  • Lack of personal hygiene
  • Increase in falls or accidents
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Unable to perform basic home maintenance
  • Trouble driving
  • Trouble word-finding
  • Forgetting to pay bills
  • Forgetting to take medications
  • Difficulty preparing meals
  • Difficulty maneuvering around the house
  • Getting lost in familiar places
  • Isolation from friends and family
  • Withdrawing from loved ones

When your senior moves into a supportive living or assisted living community, you can rest assured that your loved one will receive caring attention as well as the necessary assistance that fits their particular needs. You can find peace of mind knowing they are safe, comfortable, and respected in a compassionate environment. Your senior will have access to enjoyable activities that cater to their social, emotional, and mental needs. They will also receive assistance with the everyday tasks of living like laundry and chef-prepared meals, and personal assistance is always close by if they need it.

As a senior living community, we have always taken the necessary precautions to keep residents safe and healthy. This has only increased and enhanced since the COVID-19 pandemic. Our experienced team is doing everything in their power to bring joy, hope, and love to our wonderful residents. In doing so, we are stretching our creativity and incorporating fun and mentally stimulating activities that seniors can enjoy to pass the time.
