Signs Your Loved One's Needs Are Changing

It can often be hard to tell when aging is affecting a family member. Don't ignore the warning signs, because small things can add up to a larger challenge incredibly fast. If you notice certain changes in your loved one, it might be time to seek outside help:

  • Changes in relationships with family and friends.
  • Withdrawal from social interactions.
  • Unusual behavior, such as increased agitation, speaking loudly or little talking at all.
  • Neglecting personal care, such as hygiene or nutrition.
  • Signs of forgetfulness, such as piles of unopened mail, unwashed laundry and scorched or dirty cookware.
  • Mismanagement of finances, such as unpaid bills or unusual purchases.
