Nothing can replace home. At Bickford of Omaha Blondo, we don’t ask you to give up your home, your treasures, your memories. Instead, we want you to bring the pieces of the home you love into ours and make it yours.

Seven Problem Signs of Aging The holidays bring families together to reconnect and celebrate the season. It also tends to be the time of year when grown children who’ve left home return to visit their parents. As we get older, there is a greater risk of developing medical conditions or developing problems with memory. It is important to know what to look for and when to seek medical help. To help, here are seven signs your parents may need help: 1. Is food in the refrigerator uneaten or outdated? Are the fridge and cabinets bare? 2. Do they look like they’ve lost a lot of unexplained weight? 3. Have they ignored their personal hygiene? 4. Are there obvious signs of unpaid bills? 5. Do they seem confused or lost in the neighborhood? 6. Are they missing medical or social appointments? 7. Do they seem abnormally disconnected or confused? These signs could be an indication that your loved one is dealing with physical limitations, memory loss and depression. If your loved one is dealing with the challenges of aging, Bickford Senior Living is here to help. Relieve some of that holiday stress and let Bickford help you and your loved one work with their physicians to identify problems and suggest alternatives that may help lead a more active and comfortable lifestyle. Thank you!
