How to Tell if Help is Needed

As people get older, their needs and abilities tend to change. As adult children, you start to notice these changes, like difficulty driving or getting around the house. But how do you know when to actually step in and help?

To find out if your loved one needs help, start with an assessment, such as the one in Assessing the Situation. This is a full review on your loved one’s mental, physical, environmental and financial condition and will be able to allow you to keep your parents safely independent. It is very important to allow your parents to be involved in this process and when making a decision about their options.
