Healthmark Health Matters Adult children often serve as caregivers for aging parents. This may be due to illness, acci- dent or the inevitable decline brought on by advanced age. Are you prepared for the role? It is important to talk with our parents about their health and safety. Caregivers must monitor the health and independence of their aging parents. We must evaluate their general condition and ask our- selves, are my parents safe in their home? How well are they tak- ing care of themselves? How are their mental attitudes? Are they having diffi- culty getting around? Caregivers must also be prepared for an emer- gency and should make a list of their doctors, allergies, medications, surgeries, insurance in- Caring for elderly parents formation and other im- portant details. Discuss long-term care, living wills and other prefer- ences. These are steps we can take to help ag- ing parents maintain their independence. We begin by observ- ing our parents close- ly. Do they appear to be taking good care of themselves? Failure to keep up with bathing, tooth brushing and oth- er basic grooming could indicate dementia, de- pression or physical im- pairments. Are parents still con- necting with friends? Have they maintained interest in hobbies and other daily activities? Look around the house. Any big changes in the way your parents do things around the house could provide clues to their health. Neglected housework is another red flag. Everyone forgets things from time to time. Modest memory problems are a fairly common part of aging, and sometimes medi- cation side effects or underlying conditions contribute to memory loss. However, accord- ing to researchers at the Mayo Clinic, there's a difference between nor- mal changes in memory and the type of memory loss associated with A1- zheimer's disease and ri117-18 2015 other types of demen- tia. Problems. such as forgetting common words when speaking, dgetting lost in familiar neighborhoods or being unable to follow direc- tions may be serious and should warrant an evaluation with their doctor. Driving can some- times be challenging for older adults. If ag- ing parents become con- fused while driving or lose their ability to drive safely, it may be time to stop driving. To help them maintain their independence, discuss transportation options such as taking a bus, hiring a driver or riding with neighbors, friends and family members. Consider in-home services. If aging par- ents are having trouble taking care of them- selves, hiring someone to clean the house and run errands might be the solution. A home health aide could help with daily activities such as bath- ing and dressing and there are senior servic- es available locally, too. It is extremely im- portant for us to talk to our parents openly and honestly. Knowing that we're concerned about their health can give our parents the moti- vation they need to see a doctor or make other changes. Sometimes aging par- ents won't admit they need help. We should remind our parents that we care about them and want to do what is best to promote their health and wellbeing, both to- day and in the months and years to come.
