Choosing to get additional in-home support for yourself or a loved one is an important decision. In some cases, a physician may recommend certain services that can be received at home following a fall, surgery, or an illness. But in other cases, the need for in-home care may not be as clear. How do you know if the time is right to get some additional support in your home?
This eight-question quiz is designed to help address a variety of factors that are critical to your loved one’s safety and well-being, including family support, mobility, memory, social interactions and personal hygiene. Upon completion of the quiz, you will receive a quantifiable score that will indicate your loved one’s level of at-home independence and self-sufficiency. Once you have that score, you can contact Senior Helpers of Palo Alto for more information.
