Does Your Elderly Parent Need a Sitter?

Some elderly do very well caring for themselves to the very end of their lives, but many times, the physical and mental changes brought on by disease and aging prevent them from independently maintaining their health and safety. Some signs of the need for a caregiver include:

  • The need for assistance with meals and cooking
  • Increasing problems with balance and mobility
  • Issues regarding taking medications appropriately
  • Memory problems that affect their daily activities
  • Bladder or bowel incontinence that is poorly managed
  • Issues of cleanliness of bathrooms and kitchens
  • Increasing difficulty with shopping and transportation
  • Problems with housekeeping tasks that require bending or stooping
  • Loneliness and problems with accessing social and recreational activities

Once it has been determined that outside help would be beneficial, there are important qualities to look for in the choice of caregivers. While you may use teenagers or friends to care for a toddler, the choice of an adult sitter requires someone with special skills and personality. Not only must they be trustworthy but they must have strong judgment skills. They must be diplomatic, respectful, patient, and personable. They must have the physical strength and training to assist with any hands-on care needs and be able to identify potential or developing problems.
