Caring for a parent or senior loved one can take a toll on both a family caregiver and their loved ones – especially if a senior has been diagnosed with dementia. Many families consider moving their parent into an assisted living home during this period, but how do you recognize the signs that it’s time for assisted living?
These signs include:
Physical, sexual or violent aggression frequently happen in people with dementia, and caregivers or other family members may begin to feel resentful or stressed.
2. Caregiver stress.
Caregiver symptoms like increased stress can be just as telling a sign as the dementia behaviors described above.
3. Escalating care needs.
Ask yourself: “Are the person’s care needs beyond my physical abilities?” or “Is the health of the person with dementia or my health as a caregiver at risk?” If you’re answering yes to those questions, it might be time to have that tough family conversation.
4. Home safety.

Improved Family Relationships
Older folks frequently become dependent on their grown children, or other close family members, for help of all kinds. Unnatural role reversals can strain relationships and foster unhealthy feelings of resentment, both by parents and their children. Younger family members are liberated from the role of full-time caregivers and are able to assure that time with their older loved one is high-quality and meaningful. Older residents are glad to return to the role of family matriarch or patriarch and often pleased that their grown children no longer have to “parent the parent.” … See MoreSee Less
