Does my loved one need nursing home care?

Watching a beloved relative grow older can be tough. This is especially true if you suspect the person is in need of nursing home care, which can be a difficult decision for all involved. Very Well Health offers the following insight, which can help make your decision.

Your loved one's behavior is changing

Perhaps you noticed that your loved one is less enthusiastic lately. You may have also noticed that he or she isn't taking the time for grooming, or that the home has become a mess when the person has always been fastidious about cleaning. Changes in behavior often signal an issue, especially as a person grows older. A nursing home can be a good option in this case, as it can meet a person's material needs while also offering companionship in the form of staff and residents.

You have fears about relative becoming lost

It's not uncommon for people with Alzheimer's or dementia symptoms to become lost. This can easily lead to tragedy, especially during the winter months. If your loved one is increasingly confused and has strayed from home in the past, now is the time to contact potential nursing homes. These facilities have 24/7 monitoring to preserve the safety of residents. That way you can rest assured your relative is in good hands.

You have caregiver burnout

Caring for an aging loved may be tough on you as well. Perhaps your own health has been declining or maybe you feel stressed and anxious all the time. Caregiver burnout is a very real thing and can have serious consequences if left unchecked. Placing your family member in a safe and secure nursing home will take some of the pressure off you as well as your family.
