3 Signs It's Time For A Nursing Home

3 Signs It's Time For A Nursing Home
 

Making the choice to send your loved one to nursing homes is never easy, but perhaps it's time to recognise the signs that it's time for a nursing home.

1. Health Problems and Injuries

Age-related health decline is unavoidable and as their health declines, so does their immune system.
A decline in health can lead to injuries at home as it becomes more difficult for them to perform simple, day-to-day tasks.
Health problems and injuries among elders may involve anything from visiting the emergency room to hospitalisation.

2. Signs of Dementia

A decline in cognitive abilities such as thinking, memory, orientation and more are common early symptoms of dementia and long-term care for dementia patients can be difficult.
Ask yourself:
- Are you experiencing increasing phone calls from your loved one, sometimes during the night?
- Has your loved one gotten lost more than once and wanders off frequently
- Are your loved one often agitated or confused and has severe mood changes?


3. Is It Affecting YOU?

Lastly, many of us tend to put our loved ones before us and might not even realise how much it’s affecting us.
  
It’s time to ask yourself and evaluate your condition and make sure that you’re not putting your health at risk by giving hands-on care to your loved one.
Ask yourself:
 
- Are you emotionally or physically drained or exhausted all the time?
- Can you provide the long-term rehabilitation and professional care and supervision that’s needed from your loved one?
- Did you injure yourself in the process of trying to help your loved one?
- Are your other personal relationships in jeopardy.
