Looking for senior living options for yourself?

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.

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