Are you concerned about the safety of your aging parents? Perhaps Mom recently fell and broke a hip. Maybe Dad is having trouble sticking to his doctor's recommendations. Does your loved one seem to be isolated? Losing weight? Having difficulty with remembering important activities or events?
Like older adults, your parents probably want to remain at home. You, however, may be worried that their home situation is not as safe as it needs to be. And your family member may require more assistance than you can realistically provide.
