It may be time to talk about more assistance at home if you notice any of these signs. It is important to have this conversation as a family. This change to accepting help may be scary for you or your aging loved one. Getting help with daily tasks can be seen as a loss of independence or freedom. Uniting everyone involved with the goal of keeping the aging adult at home is a great way of calming these nerves and working towards supporting the person in need. As this plan develops, it is essential to get the buy in of the family and the senior to ensure they know this is a collective choice. Once everyone is on the same page, you can turn your focus to picking the best fit for in-home care and asking the important questions. The choice to keep a senior in the home is to aid in their comfort as they age, so you need to be comfort with where you choose to get the necessary help.
