When you have a loved one who is beginning to need help, it can be a struggle to make sure the holidays are as positive as they can be.

It is during the holidays that people who haven't seen each other in a while will have the chance to see changes in each other. For some, that means seeing a change in the way an older loved one may be functioning at home. They may need help cleaning or getting around quickly.
