Do you feel comfortable driving? Would it be a great relief to have transportation available right at your door? Are your prescriptions current and are you taking your medications correctly? Have you seen the doctor lately? Do you get lonely, especially at mealtimes?

A few factors to watch for: a senior who suddenly stops doing a longtime hobby, or withdraws. Sudden weight loss. Change in grooming habits. A house in disorder. An inability to follow conversations. If you suspect memory loss is disrupting your loved one’s daily routine, it could be time to seek medical advice.
