Caring for Senior Loved Ones This Holiday Season

Check in on your senior loved ones this holiday season.

 

Safety - Is the home and lawn clutter free? Are there trip hazards like extension cords or various items on the floor? Is your loved one able to clean and maintain the house?

Nutrition - Is there healthy and fresh food in the fridge and pantry? Is your loved one preparing and eating well rounded meals?

Medication - Have their medications been refilled recently? Are they being taken as prescribed? Can your loved one tell you what each is for? 

Financial - Have bills been opened and paid? Do you see any evidence of financial exploitation in billing statements? 

Supplies - Does your loved one have enough food, bottled water, medicines, batteries, toilet paper, etc. to ensure they can safely experience another quarantine?
