Thanksgiving With Aging Parents: What to Keep an Eye Out For
Happy day before Thanksgiving!
If you’re going to see your aging parents tomorrow, that’s a prime time to make sure they’re in good condition, experts say. Here are some warning signs to watch for, from Dorland Health’s Senior Services Report:
- Confusion, repeating themselves, memory problems
- Being unstable
- Weight change
- Mood problems; being aggressive or agitated
- Being disorganized or unkempt
The article, written by a nurse who works with a home-care company, explains what these signs may mean and what to do if you recognize them. These are just some of the things they say to watch out for. You can read the article here: “Coming Home for the Holidays to Aging Parents.”
