PRESTIGE SENIOR LIVING - Randall WilsonSometimes, when a far-flung family comes together for the holidays, they may discover that an elderly loved one is having difficulty functioning well at home.

Here are some signs to look for:

Altered eating habits. Forgetting to eat or losing interest in food altogether are both signs of poor health. Alternatively, seniors with memory issues can overeat or repeat meals. A kitchen stocked with spoiled, half-eaten or expired food suggests a senior who can no longer manage alone.

Antisocial behavior. Losing interest in friends, withdrawing from social situations or neglecting a previously cherished hobby may indicate depression, memory loss or a decline in cognitive abilities.

Worsening finances. A senior who forgets to pay bills (or pays them multiple times) may need help managing their household finances. Look for unwanted magazine subscriptions or donation solicitations that can easily drain a bank account.

Poor personal hygiene. Many seniors feel uncomfortable asking for help with personal hygiene. Bad odors, a disheveled appearance or indications of skipped showers and baths all suggest that a senior can no longer perform daily grooming tasks unaided.

Decline in safety. For a senior, a fall in the shower (and the subsequent hospitalization) can be a life-threatening injury. A senior who leaves the stove on or forgets how often to take their medication may need daily help.

While the family’s in town, be proactive. Don’t wait until the situation becomes an emergency.

Call us to arrange a tour. We’ll be glad to show you what makes Prestige Care Huntington Terrace special.

WESTON KIA - Dan SchofieldIn Oregon, our first really cold snap can happen anytime. Don’t get stuck on the road – or spinning around on it - in a vehicle unprepared for winter.

Take your vehicle to a reputable shop and make sure it’s checked for the following winter basics:

Engine coolant doesn’t just keep your engine from overheating – it also protects your engine from corrosion. Every vehicle requires a certain ratio of coolant to water. Your repair technician will know that ratio, as well as what type of coolant to use.

Have your oil checked to ensure you have the proper type for the changing weather outside. During the winter months, when temperatures get below freezing, your mechanic may advise switching to a thinner, less viscous oil.

Battery - Don’t let a dead battery put a screeching halt to your day. A thorough inspection of your battery, cables, terminals and fluid will head off problems and make sure your car is ready for winter. The shop will check the age and strength (amount of voltage) left in your battery and find out whether it needs replacement.

Tires – What type will you need for the terrain and conditions you’ll be driving through - whether it’s snow, sleet or ice? Should you drive all-season tires or invest in snow tires? If you choose snow tires, most car manufacturers recommend changing all four to snow tires in the winter.

Plan ahead now to make your winter holidays a lot more enjoyable!
