As your parents get older, their capacity to look after themselves often declines. Sometimes, your loved one may not acknowledge it but if you find yourself in this situation, here are the tell-tale signs your loved one may need some extra help.
These changes may include physical functions; you may have noticed they are having difficulty walking or going up the stairs. Your loved one may be having difficulty completing household functions; are they having trouble with everyday tasks such as cooking or laundry?
