Forgetfulness can be a red flag but might be attributed to many things; is it just the excitement of the encroaching holidays or the arrival of early onset Alzheimer’s?
How are children of older adults to know for sure? There are clues to look out for:
In the report called, “Aging parents: 7 Warning Signs of health problems”, LeeAnn and Bernie Allman, owners of Assisted Transition\ East San Gabriel Valley, provide an outline on how to gauge your aging parents health during the holidays and every day.
Some of these are obvious, such as repeating stories over and over, or forgetting where they were going within seconds of moving from room to room. Others are more subtle. Is it simply leaving the keys someplace, or more?
Naturally, a qualified medical practitioner is required to diagnose the problem. However, most adult children become aware of new or increasing challenges after being with Mom or Dad for a week or two.
LeeAnn, a trained senior care advisor, is in a position to assist families once they determine Mom or Dad need help, especially if they live far apart or across country.
Assisted Transition is a Senior Living and Care Finder Agency, for the sole purpose of helping parents and seniors find the right help, be it in-home care, an assisted living community, or other options.
The process works like this:
1. The concerned family member can schedule a call or in-person appointment with an Elder Care Advisor to begin assessment and placement process.
2. After the assessment, an Individual Profile is created. LeeAnn and her staff then go over all the different options based on personal, financial, and geographic needs. Then she will schedule and take you on tours with the care communities that match your family’s individual needs.
3. Finally, follow-up is done once a placement has been achieved.
Of course, the first and foremost, as mentioned, is to see what the problems might be. And because the fear factor comes in, it’s important to make sure. That’s why the FREE REPORT has been made available.
