Home for the Holidays in New York? It's Prime Time for Checking on Older Relatives

AARP Releases List of Quick Tips & Questions to Simplify Observing How Older Relatives are Doing

NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The turkey is defrosting in the refrigerator and family, both immediate and extended, is starting to gather at the house for Thanksgiving. For many American families this is the once-a-year time that they travel from across the nation and world to be with loved ones and AARP says its prime time to check on older family members. 

To help, today, AARP is releasing a list of tips and questions to simplify observing how Mom, Dad and other relatives are doing with everything from mobility to heath and finances. 

Taking a Look at their Home – How to tell if their home is still appropriate

  • Can they still manage the stairs, or would a chair lift or a home on one level be better?
  • Are you concerned that their home may have safety hazards, such as dark stairs, loose rugs, clutter, or fire hazards? Would brighter lighting and fewer tripping hazards help?  The checklists on AARP's web site can help.
  • Is there a bath on the ground floor and a room that could become a bedroom if necessary?
  • Could simple modifications to their home, like easier to use handles and switches, pull out cabinet shelves, a comfort height toilet or walk in shower make it more convenient?

Getting Around – How to gauge their driving safety and transportation options

  • If they are still driving, ride with them and observe their driving.  Are they having close calls?  Are there dents or dings on the car or garage? Do they drive too slow or miss signs or signals?  Do they have difficulties at intersections?  Have they gotten warnings or tickets?   These are a few signs that it might be time to talk about limiting driving or hanging up the keys.  For help talking about driving try this: www.aarp.org/weneedtotalk
  • Look around the community or make a note to research their alternative transportation options for shopping, medical visits, religious services and visits with family and friends if they hang up the keys.

Health – A few key things to check

  • If you don't already know about their health problems and current medications, take this time to ask. Are their prescriptions current?
  • Has their doctor or pharmacist reviewed all of their medications for side effects and potentially dangerous interactions or effect on driving? Their pharmacist can be a great resource. www.aarp.org/relationships/caregiving/info-02-2009/ginzler_wise_use 
  • Are they having any problems taking their medications? Do they always remember which medications to take and when? Would a pill organizer be helpful? 
  • Make sure that they know that it is Medicare open enrollment season until December 7 and see if they need to update their coverage. See if they have any questions about Medicare or Medicaid or changes under the new health care law. Find help at www.aarp.org/medicare.
  • See if they could use help with filling out forms, such as insurance claims.

Finances – How to get ready to help

  • Is all of their financial information in one place and do you know where it is so you can access it in an emergency?
  • Check on the condition of their mail. Are bills stacking up?  Are there late notices?
  • Do they have any bills they can't pay? 

Your turn!

  • It could be wise to take this opportunity to make a resolution to plan for your own future.  Here's help: www.aarp.org/decide
