Look for Changes

Over the holidays you visited your relatives, noticing a slight decline in an elderly person's behavior, or actions. What do you do?

Discuss the elderly person's situation.
See if a family member can oversee the care of the person.
Don't be shy. Speak up.
Check with the Elder Care Locator, a service offered from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. They can refer local resources.
