As individuals age, they experience many different changes in their life that may affect their mental and emotional health.
The grieving of loved ones, loss of physical or mental abilities, rapid lifestyle changes and in-creased physical challenges can all lead to cognitive impairment and behavioral difficulties.
Minor symptoms are a normal part of the aging process, but persistent personality changes or unusual behavior may indicate that your loved one is in need of care.
Behavioral Changes to watch for:
- Severe depression
- Suicidal or homicidal ideations
- Social isolation
- Preoccupation with death or dying
- Episodes of tearfulness, increased irritability or anger.
- Excessive worrying.
- Deterioration of daily living skills
- Auditory or visual hallucinations
- Psychotic, delusional or paranoid behavior.
