Elderly Care Facilities in Sri Lanka.

Old age is a very sensitive and fragile period in life where elderly people need extra care and comfort. When the elderly in our care are prone to accidents would you know how to handle the situation? Are you aware of the resources available in Colombo to take care of the elderly? As our parents, or relatives or those we give care to – age; they require more and more help because they lose their natural ability to take care of themselves and most times growing old presents its own challenges.

Discussing assistance to aging loved ones is not always simple. Maybe you've noticed that your mother who was once meticulous about her appearance, is wearing wrinkled clothes and not doing her hair. Perhaps there are bruises or constant falls and when addressed, their instant response is, "Everything is fine, there's no need to worry." Admitting they need help would mean they can no longer take care of themselves, and no one wants to lose their independence. Admitting they need help and accepting assistance is not easy for people as they age.The burden often falls on the family to recognize the signs that an aging parent might need help with daily living tasks.

Signs Your Parent Needs Help

When is it right to offer help to your elderly loved ones? There will always be a few  telltale signs you can pick up: spoiled food that doesn't get thrown away, unexplained bruising, forgetting appointments, difficulties in mobility, difficulty getting up from a seated position, difficulty in walking and balance, forgetfulness, strong smell of urine in the house, confusion in performing familiar tasks, a notable difference in grooming habits and personal care, extreme clutter and dirty laundry and dishes piling up, poor diet or weight loss, loss of interest in hobbies and activities, changes in mood or extreme mood swings, forgetting to take medications, or taking incorrect dosages.
