Aging Signs To Watch For #3

#3:  Pay attention to your parents’ appearance. Are they taking care of themselves? Are their clothes clean?

Also pay attention to your parents’ home. Are the lights working? Is the heat on? Are the bathrooms clean? Is the yard overgrown? Any big changes in the way your parents do things around the house could provide clues to their health. For example, scorched pots could mean your parents are forgetting about food cooking on the stove.

Neglected housework and/or failure to keep up with daily routines such as bathing, tooth brushing and other basic grooming can be a sign of depression, dementia or other problems.
