You may notice changes in a person’s health while caring for them or in those people who are close to you. It’s vital to recognise any deterioration in health early to reduce the likelihood of unnecessary complications or further preventable deterioration.
If you identify any signs of deteriorating health in someone you are caring for, it is important you report these changes and discuss your concerns with their GP and Aged Care Adviser as soon as possible.
