What is Senior Care and When Should You Consider it?
Senior care varies in complexity and can include basic necessities such as assistance with dressing, bathing, and eating to more complex needs like providing personal care and monitoring medication.
The time for senior care can be different for everyone depending on their situation. If you have an elderly parent that still has a high level of independence and doesn’t require much assistance from others then you might not need senior care until they need it. But if your elderly parent has become more dependent on others for daily living and needs more extensive help then you should start considering senior care sooner rather than later.
There are many factors that can affect when you should consider senior care. These factors include:
– The number of hours that a senior needs assistance every day
– The level of medical problems or disabilities
– Whether a senior has any family members or friends who can help them with their needs
– Whether a senior lives alone or with others
Other factors that can affect this decision include your finances, mental health, and the physical health of the person in need of care.

– Reduced caregiver stress
– Improved quality of life for seniors
– Reduced caregiver burden
– Increased opportunity to socialize and interact with others
