The Phone in the Refrigerator

February 6, 2017

Over the holidays, you may have gotten together with older loved ones. It’s common during visits to notice that things are “funny” with mom or dad. Typically, it’s not loss of memory per se, but confusion, disorientation and difficulties with communication.

One client told us that she knew something was amiss when she found her mom’s phone in the refrigerator.

If you’ve noticed something odd, it may be worth having your loved one see a specialist. Early detection helps you understand options, identify assistance and maintain a better quality of life. It can provide the impetus for seniors to make legal and financial plans before others are forced to do it for them.

Consider consulting a professional if your loved one experiences any of the following:

  • Having a hard time with routine tasks such as making toast
  • Pulling back from social interactions such as church, clubs or sports
  • Loss of memory: frequent forgetfulness of names and appointments
  • Challenges in identifying the right words to express ideas
  • Having a hard time with abstract thoughts such as calculating a tip
  • Getting lost in familiar locations
  • Misplacing things
  • Noticeable differences in mood or personality
