Monitoring the safety and well-being of your elderly loved one

You have recently made the decision to put your elderly loved on in a nursing home facility in Kentucky. You and other family members are concerned about being able to provide your loved one with the day-to-day needs of living, as well as guaranteeing that quality medical care is readily accessible at a moment's notice. At Debra L. Broz, we understand the concerns that families face when they turn the care needs of their elderly family members over to someone else. 

As soon as you make a decision about where your loved one will reside, your next concern is probably going to be whether or not he or she will be compassionately cared for and receive personalized assistance based on individual preferences. According to Dr. Phil, one of the most effective ways to protect your loved one's safety and well-being is to thoroughly research reputable facilities at the beginning. 

Once your loved one has moved in, you should be vigilant to recognize warning signs that could indicate that abuse or neglect is happening. Some of the things you may watch for include the following:

  • Matted hair and poor hygiene. 
  • Bruises, sores or other unexplained injuries.
  • Unusual or unexplained financial expenditures.  
  • Changes to his or her mental attitude, fear and depression. 

When you are aware of the signs of abuse, you can better recognize when you should be immediately concerned about your loved one and report suspicious behavior to the authorities. For more information about how to protect your elderly loved one, visit our web page.
