Is it the right time for help?

How do I know if it is the right time to get help for myself?

How do I know if it is the right to get help for my loved one?

How do I know what to consider for making the best decision for myself and my family?

The answers to all of these questions are personal and unique to the individual. A good guideline is to determine if there has been a recent “trigger” event. There may be other signs leading up to this moment, but the “trigger” event differs in that there is a clear need for additional support required by the individual and their family members. An example of a common “trigger” event can include the reduced ability to get around which may be from the loss of a driver’s license or a fall resulting in an injury.

Other examples that may require consideration are decreased attention given to personal appearance, food safety, and/or nutrition or difficulty executing day-to-day activities such as paying bills, taking medication etc.

We are here to help you or your family determine if it is time for care assistance to ultimately improve your or your loved one’s safety, health and well-being.
