It can be challenging to figure out when the right time to hire in-home care is. Look for warning signs and discuss it with your loved one when you feel home health care could be beneficial. Here are some warning signs to look out for: wandering away from home, leaving the stove on, not eating regularly or nutritiously, falling frequently or having difficulty walking without help, or no longer preparing simple meals. When you feel your loved one can’t be safe without help, discuss the options and allow them to determine what he or she is most comfortable doing.
