In many cases it may be obvious. Mom is forgetting to take her medications or cannot remember where they are. Dad is repeating himself or losing his balance and falling. For many, those times are the trigger for additional care.
In other cases, it is more subtle. Dad is having more trouble parking in the garage and the car has more scratches. Mom doesn't dress as neatly or keep the house as tidy as before. In such cases recognizing when additional care is needed may be less obvious. The following list may be helpful if you are unsure whether a loved one is ready for extra care in the home.

- Has recently lost the right or ability to drive
