As you make travel plans to see your loved ones this holiday season, you may want to prepare yourself for what you’ll find when you get there.
Parents are pretty good at hiding their ailments — until we see them in person. And without a helpful resource, knowing the difference between your mom or dad being a little forgetful, having a “senior moment” or it being something more serious, can be difficult to determine as well as a little scary.
The Option Group can help. Our team of certified care managers brings 100 years of experience working with adult children who find themselves in the role of caregiver. As a result, we’ve compiled this helpful checklist of things to watch for while home for the holidays — signs that your aging loved one may need some assistance to continue to live safely and independently at home.
