A rug that’s easily tripped over. The food that has been left unattended in the refrigerator. The car that has become a source of worry. A slippery shower floor. These scenarios might not indicate a life-threatening issue to an average adult. But for the adult who has memory loss, dementia, Alzheimer’s, or even a little trouble getting around, any one of these annoyances can trigger a visit to the hospital, or worse.
Families who have elderly loved ones living on their own may be too busy or live too far away to check in every day. If options for care are being considered, a suggested move out of the home may raise alarm bells for the senior who is being asked to transition into an assisted living or nursing home situation.
