Statistics on Senior Alcoholism

Caregiver in Garden City NY: Alcohol abuse problems among elderly Americans are generally ignored, overlooked, or misdiagnosed. The symptoms of depression – insomnia, mood swings and anxiety – can mirror the warning signs of alcoholism. Substance abuse screenings are rarely part of annual physical exams, making it more challenging to detect the early signs of a potential drinking problem.

Senior Health Challenges to Watch For

Home Care in Brookhaven NY: Family caregivers have the responsibility to watch out for their elderly relatives and help them out physically and emotionally. As people age, they are more likely to develop age related health challenges. Sometimes, the elderly people are aware of the changes and have no problem asking for medical help. Other elderly people may be in denial that they are showing symptoms of age-related health issues. Then, it’s up to caregivers, with the help of home care assistants, family members, and others, to take note of the symptoms in their elderly loved one and make arrangements to get them to their doctor.
