9 Signs Your Loved One Needs Daily Living Assistance

As your loved one begins to age, it becomes necessary to meet their changing needs by ensuring they receive any assistance they may require. At Nurta Home Healthcare in Massachusetts, we offer daily living assistance – a service designed to help seniors maintain their independence in the comfort of their own homes while providing you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your loved one is safe and taken care of. Below is a comprehensive list to help you identify signs your loved one needs daily living assistance.

How to Tell When Your Loved One Needs Daily Living Assistance

It can be difficult to know when your loved one needs help – especially if you’re unaware of the signs. To help, we at Nurta Home Healthcare have put together a list of indicators you can be on the lookout for. Here are some warnings that your loved one may need daily living assistance. 

1. Difficulty with Daily Tasks

If you notice your loved one is struggling with everyday tasks such as bathing, dressing, grooming, cooking, or cleaning, it may be a sign that they need help with daily activities. Home caregivers from Nurta Home Healthcare can provide support with these tasks, ensuring their safety and well-being. 

2. Memory Loss & Confusion

Alzheimer’s and dementia can significantly impact an individual’s ability to take care of themselves. If your loved one is experiencing memory loss, confusion, or difficulty following instructions, our specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia home care services can help them remain in their home to maintain a sense of familiarity and comfort as they age.

3. Increased Falls & Accidents 

Frequent falls and accidents can be a major concern for seniors living alone. If your loved one has had multiple falls or accidents recently, it may be an indication that they need assistance with mobility and fall prevention. Nurta Home Healthcare offers 24-hour home care services, ensuring one of our qualified team members is always nearby to provide support and reduce the risk of accidents.

4. Decline in Personal Hygiene

If your loved one is neglecting their hygiene by not bathing regularly or keeping their living space clean, this can be a result of physical limitations or cognitive decline. These challenges may make it difficult for them to maintain personal care and a safe living environment without the help of daily senior care.

5. Poor Medication Management

If your loved one is struggling to manage their medications properly, it can lead to serious health risks, especially if they forget to take important medications or don’t take their correct doses. Daily living assistance can include medication reminders and help, ensuring that they follow their prescribed regimen accurately.

6. Social Isolation 

Noticeable changes in your loved one’s social behavior, such as withdrawing from social activities or avoiding interactions with friends and family, can be a sign that they need daily living assistance. Loneliness and social isolation can have detrimental effects on their mental and emotional well-being.

7. Unexplained Weight Loss or Poor Nutrition

Difficulty with meal planning and preparation can lead to poor nutrition and weight loss. If your loved one is not eating well or is experiencing weight loss without a clear reason, it may be a sign that they need help with meal preparation or dietary management.

8. Hospitalization or Surgery

If your loved one has recently been hospitalized or undergone surgery, they may require extra care and support during their recovery period. We provide hospital-to-home care services, helping seniors transition back to their homes smoothly and safely. 

9. Veteran Seniors

We also offer specialized care services for veteran seniors and their surviving spouses. If your loved one is a veteran, they may be eligible for in-home private duty care services tailored to their unique needs.
