Signs to Look for When Visiting Your Aging Parents

Helping care for aging parents starts with knowing what to be mindful of, what to look for and what to ask. While you enjoy the company of family this holiday season, make a point to check in with Mom and Dad. Open a dialogue and take advantage of the opportunity to observe. This can allow you to home in on any aspects of their lives that may benefit from the additional assistance of a continuing care retirement community like The Buckingham.

To make this a smoother, more informed process, we’ve put together a checklist of 5 key areas to investigate. It’s a consolidated guide designed specifically to help those with aging parents spot the signs it’s time for senior living.

Once you have a sense for where your loved one stands and where they may be headed, you can begin to identify when to move your parent into assisted living, whether memory care may be more appropriate, or if services like skilled nursing, rehabilitation or respite care can have the greatest impact. As always, we want to serve as a resource for you and your family. So if questions arise after time spent with loved ones during this festive time of year or any other season of life, don’t hesitate to contact us here or call 713-660-6552 to schedule a personal consultation.
