Assisting Hands – Serving Boca Delray has published a series of editorial content to help you recognize the warning signs that your elderly parent may need home care. At Assisting Hands®, we help you explore whether or not it is time to work with caregivers. It’s also important to recognize the early ages of diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s so that you may gently introduce and transition your loved ones to home care services.
“There are many warning signs that may indicate that in-home care is needed for your elderly parent to live safe and independent at home. After identifying those warning signs, it’s important to start a conversation to get them help.” said Ricardo Perez, President with Assisting Hands – Serving Boca Delray.
