Senior Risk Assessment

It is a common misconception that the best indicator of a senior’s health is physical ability. Unfortunately, this overlooks many basic issues affecting seniors. Below are a few questions to consider when assessing overall health and wellness. Answering “yes” to three or more questions indicates a need to further evaluate a senior’s current living arrangement.

  • Have they recently lost a spouse or friend?
  • Has their enthusiasm toward social programs declined?
  • Do they spend more than 5 hours a day alone?
  • Are they able to do all the cleaning and upkeep around their house?
  • Are you concerned about their driving?
  • Have their eating habits changed?
  • Have you noticed a shift in their mood or spirits?
  • Do they express concern about changes in their neighborhood?
  • Do they eat more than three meals a week alone?
  • Has their balance or hand-eye coordination declined?
  • Have they lost interest in hobbies or activities they once enjoyed?
  • Have they become more dependent on others for transportation?
