Happy Thanksgiving From Age Advantage in Palm Bay!
Please remember to check on your elderly family members.
For those who have relied on regular telephone conversations and assessment by other closer-living relatives to gauge aging parents’ well-being, the upcoming holiday visit may be revealing. Absence – even for a short period – often allows us to observe a situation through new eyes.
It’s the perfect time to establish a base line on behavior and make sure they are taking care of themselves. If not, take notes and don’t be afraid to have discussions once there is time to talk. Let them know your concerns so that these discussions can continue without hard feelings. Let them know they are loved!
