Lapses in personal hygiene may indicate a few different types of changes in a senior’s health and wellbeing. A senior who is bathing less regularly may be dealing with physical mobility issues or emotional distress from feeling isolated or depressed. Wearing clothes repeatedly may also be a sign of mobility concerns or could be a signal of difficulty remembering when laundry has been completed. Good hygiene is important for both physical and mental wellbeing, but this topic is a sensitive one for many adults. A caring and understanding attitude is important when discussing hygiene issues with your loved one.
Many signals can indicate you may need to explore senior living choices.
