Does your loved one need assisted living? 5 clues to look for this holiday

As the holidays approach, you may be spending more time with your parents or other aging loved ones, and perhaps even visiting in their home more than usual. If that’s the case, now is the perfect opportunity to evaluate their needs and determine if they may require more care and support like assisted living. Here are five important clues to look for:

1. Take a look in the kitchen
Are there expired items in the fridge, or spoiled food and dirty dishes on the counter?

2. Examine the medicine cabinet
Do see unopened or expired medicine that they should be taking regularly?

3. Take a closer look at their appearance
Is their personal hygiene suffering? Are their clothes stained or not suitable for the weather?

4. Glance around the house
Are they having trouble completing chores such as laundry, vacuuming, or doing the dishes?

5. Take note of their mobility
Are they unsteady or trapped because they can’t navigate the stairs or other distances?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, Park Springs Assisted Living households can help. Our complete Continuum of Care meets your loved one right where they are with households that offer the exact level of care they need now…and in the future.

The Club Level offers an independent lifestyle where Members have their own amenities including the Harvest Restaurant and a fitness center in addition to all the amenities on our 61-acre campus.

In River Household, Members with mild cognitive impairments enjoy a mentally stimulating environment with activities to help them improve and maintain brain function such as art therapy, music therapy, exercise, and brain-healthy food options prepared in a Mediterranean style.

And in Farm Household, a home-inspired setting designed to support a range of physical abilities welcomes Members with activities tailored to your loved one’s individual needs. This household enhances quality of life while supporting unique rehabilitative care needs.

Both River and Farm Households are centered around a common kitchen, allowing Members access to food prepared by a Homemaker (Personal Chef) which allows for flexibility and schedule-free living.
