Are medications being taken correctly?
On a medicine regimen? Watch to see when and what is being taken. Do they seem to manage their meds well? Take a look at their daily pill-keepers to make sure medicine is being taken. Managing medications can be confusing- and when not managed well, very dangerous.
Is the mail being opened and managed, and are bills being paid?
If unopened mail and past-due bills are sitting out in plain sight, make a mental note. While this isn’t an issue of safety, these things may be indicators that primary household responsibilities aren’t being taken care of.
