10 Signs a Senior Needs Assistance

In Uncategorized on July 16, 2010 at 6:31 pm

Hey, this comes from Dr. Johnson’s blog post today, and I think it’s very important to show to you guys!

http://www.aolhealth.com/2010/04/01/senior-assistance-signs/

That article lays out the 10 major signs that an elderly loved one needs assistance, and reading it may help to save someone’s life or improve their well-being.

Here’s the list in short form:

1. Poor hygiene

2. Poor nutrition

3. Lack of housework

4. General ailing health

5. Problems managing medication

6. Extensive bruising

7. Disorientation (time or direction)

8. Observations by members of the community

9. Unkempt finances

10. Susceptibility to scams

Some of those may sound confusing at the surface, so I encourage you to go check out the article to learn more! And as always, if you have any questions, just go ahead and shoot me an email. 🙂
