LifeCare Advocates, an organization that assists families with elder care issues, created the guidelines below that will help you to determine if your loved one is in need of some extra help.
If mobility challenges exist, Amramp has a wide range
of accessibility products that will make your elderly
loved one’s home as safe and accessible as possible
MobilityA deterioration in someone’s physical health can increase the chance of falls, which in some cases can be catastrophic.
ForgetfulnessIf you see recurring instances of forgetfulness, including repeating the same thing more than once, it may be a sign a more serious problem.
Dangerous habitsLeaving the stove on, not locking the front door, taking expired medications, or forgetting to turn off a car in a garage are all red flags that something may be wrong.
ClutterAn untidy house, including stacks of mail and unpaid bills, could be a sign that your loved one needs help.
IsolationLoneliness can have a very negative impact on health.
Weight lossAn unintentional decline in weight may signal the onset of disease or a side effect of medications. It can lead to a decline in quality of life as well as increased mortality.
Lack of foodNo food in the house could mean your loved one has lost interest in eating or needs assistance getting to the grocery store. If mobility challenges are one of the warning signs impacting your loved one, your local Amramp expert can evaluate any home to determine what changes are needed to make it as safe and accessible as possible. Whether a home needs an access ramp at one or more entrances, at thresholds for easy room-to-room access, a stairlift that connects to upper floors, or even safety rails and bars in the bathroom – let us show you all the ways that your loved one can live independently and safely at home.
