Noticing Changes in Loved Ones During the Holidays

Noticing Changes in Loved Ones During the Holidays

#SeniorLiving

 

As families gather to celebrate the holidays, you might be seeing an aging loved one for the first time in months, or maybe even since this time last year.

With that, you might notice changes in their health and well-being. If that’s the case, it’s a good idea to sit down with them, and perhaps someone who sees them more often than you do, and ask a few questions about their health.

Our team here at Prestige Senior Living Beaverton Hills has a few suggested questions to consider:

Questions for Aging Loved Ones

  • Have you suffered any falls lately?
  • When’s the last time you saw your doctor?
  • Has your doctor made any changes to your prescriptions recently?
  • How are you sleeping at night? Do you sleep much during the day?
  • What health issues are you most concerned about for the future?

Questions for Their Day-to-Day Caregivers

  • Do they ever seem unsteady on their feet as they walk around?
  • Has there been any change in their appetite or eating habits?
  • Have you noticed any forgetfulness or memory loss?
  • Are they still driving? If so, are they driving at night? How safe do you feel in a car with them at the wheel?
  • Do you get the sense their eyesight and/or hearing is diminished?
