A very important topic – recognizing the signs when it is time for assisted living. We understand this is a difficult and sensitive decision to make, so we hope this post provides some clarity and guidance.
So, how can you tell when it’s time for assisted living? Here are seven signs to look out for:
1. Increased Difficulty with Daily Tasks
When daily tasks, like cooking, cleaning, or personal care, become challenging or overwhelming, it may be time to consider assisted living. At The Mann House, our dedicated team is always ready to lend a hand, ensuring our residents can live their lives with dignity and comfort.
2. Changes in Physical Health
Noticeable weight loss, frequent falls, or worsening health conditions can be clear signs that your loved one needs a higher level of care. Our skilled nursing staff at The Mann House offers round-the-clock medical attention, assuring your loved ones are safe and healthy.
3. Loneliness or Isolation
If your loved one spends more time alone, it could lead to feelings of loneliness and depression. Assisted living provides a social environment with various activities to ensure they stay engaged, connected, and never feel alone.
4. Neglected Household and Personal Care
A once tidy home that’s now cluttered, neglected personal hygiene, or unpaid bills may indicate your loved one is struggling to maintain their household. Assisted living offers the support needed to keep their living space clean and themselves well-groomed.
5. Memory Loss
If your loved one is showing signs of memory loss, forgets to take medication, or experiences confusion, an assisted living facility specializing in memory care, like The Mann House, can provide the appropriate care, supervision, and assistance.
6. Safety Concerns
If there have been instances where your loved one has left the stove on, had a close call while driving, or other safety-related incidents, it may be time to consider assisted living where there is 24/7 supervision to ensure their safety.
7. Caregiver Burnout
If you, as the caregiver, feel overwhelmed or stressed with the responsibilities, it may be time to seek help. Remember, it’s not just about the person needing care but also about the wellbeing of the caregiver.
