At Interim HealthCare of Pittsburgh, we know that making the decision to find in-home senior care services can be challenging for the entire family. Your parents may not be ready to admit they need help, and you may be struggling with feeling that you aren't doing enough to help them. That's when a professional senior care services agency can provide the most help and support. We understand the difficult position you are in and can help you decide if now is the time to get your parent or aging loved one the assistance that will make it possible for them to continue aging in place.

Signs It's Time for Senior Care Services

One of the most common questions we get at Interim HealthCare of Pittsburgh is about the timing of senior care services. When is the right time? How do you know if the time is right? There are some key signs that can indicate your loved one in the Pittsburgh area could benefit from senior care services. Some of the most common signs include:

  • Changes in diet and weight loss
