We get calls pretty often where the caller wonders whether or not a senior (usually a parent) in his or her life might benefit from home care.  However, the caller is not clear on what to look for or whether or not the senior really needs care or that it would help.  Here are some general indicators that will guide you.  If some of the following questions (or your answers) “rings true” for you, our experience has been that arranging for care sooner than later results in being able to stay at home much longer.  When is the best time to arrange for care?  That question will be addressed in future posts.
