Signs That a Senior Needs Help

As many baby boomers face the challenge of becoming caregivers for their parents, it’s important to know what warning signs for failing health to look for. According to Years Ahead —an online guide for families on finding senior care solutions—some of the most common early indicators that an aging loved one needs care are:

  • Forgetting things/short-term memory loss
  • Loss of balance/falling
  • Challenges driving
  • Trouble making it to the toilet
  • Disheveled/unkempt appearance
  • Messy, cluttered house
  • Sudden weight loss

However, according to a recent survey, almost a third (31 percent) of those who have seen these signs have not raised the issue of senior care with their parents because they don’t know how to initiate the conversation. For more information and tools to get the discussion going, visit
