f you see signs beyond some general slowing of physical function, it?s important to take an aging parent to a doctor ? if possible, a geriatric medicine specialist ? for an evaluation to uncover what may be causing noticeable changes. [ [ Any number of illnesses could be behind worrisome symptoms. Increased fatigue and reduced energy may not seem like urgent health issues, but they should

Weakness and shortness of breath can be signs of heart disease, even if your parent isn?t complaining of chest pain.

But that unsteadiness can lead to falls, which can be dangerous for aging adults who may easily break a bone or suffer a head injury. Signs of instability should be evaluated by a doctor, and the aging parent?s home environment should be carefully checked for hazards that could cause trips and falls. ] ]
