Four Warning Signs Your Senior Needs More from You

Home Care Southern Highla, CA:Your Senior Needs More from You

There’s a lot to keep up with as a caregiver and so much of it can feel impossible to figure out on your own. Your senior may be at a point where she needs more of your time and your assistance, but she’s not sure how to let you know that. She might let you know through some subtle signs like these that her needs are changing.

 

Her Behavior Is More Paranoid than Usual

Your senior might be paranoid for a variety of reasons and some of that paranoia might be justified. She might be worried about her neighborhood or her health, for instance. But if she’s experiencing much more frequent episodes of paranoia or she’s paranoid about every little situation in her life, that can be a sign that there’s more going on.

She’s More Anxious and Agitated than Usual
In addition to paranoia, your elderly family member might be more agitated or anxious than normal. She might be able to describe what is causing her anxiety but be prepared for her to tell you she’s feeling antsy but she’s not sure why. She can have subconscious reasons behind those feelings that may not make sense to her, either.

 
You’re Getting Phone Calls at Weird Times
If you don’t live with your elderly family member, you’re probably used to getting phone calls from her letting you know she needs something or just to talk. But if you’re starting to get phone calls more often or at unusual times, like in the middle of the night, your elderly family member might be having some issues she’s not sure how to mention to you. Paranoia and anxiety can contribute to this, too.

 
She Just Seems Different than Usual
Of course, there may be other changes going on that you can’t really put your finger on. Your senior might just feel a little different to you than she usually does. If you think you’re noticing something different in your senior, you’re probably not wrong. Follow your intuition and just dig a little bit deeper. Her doctor can help you and your senior to determine if there’s more going on than you realize.

 
Spotting and understanding these red flags can help you to get your senior what she needs. Even if you’re not able to give her all the help she needs personally, you can put elder care providers in place to make her life easier.

 
Excerpt: There are some distinct warning signs that you might be overlooking in your senior’s behavior.
