Is Your Parent Ready for Assisted Living? Ask Yourself These Questions…..

It’s easy to overlook signs of decline in older adults, so ask yourself the following questions to help you determine if your parent is ready for assisted living:

  • Is your parent telling you that he is eating, but you’re seeing food go bad in the refrigerator?
  • Is your parent covering up bruises from falling that he or she doesn’t want you to see?
  • Have you seen your parent wearing the same clothes when you go to visit?
  • Does your parent hear strange noises in the night?
  • When you look around the house or yard, is it as neat and clean as it used to be?
  • Is your parent able to take medications correctly?
  • Does your parent respond appropriately to an emergency?
  • When you really look at your parent, do you see the bright and vibrant person from years ago, or do you see a more limited person who needs some help one hour a day, three hours a day, or around the clock?

If you answered yes to even a couple of these questions, your parent may be ready for an assisted living facility.

WHAT IS A HOME INSPECTION?

What Is An Inspection?

A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. Home inspections are usually conducted by a home inspector who has the training and certifications to perform such inspections. The inspector prepares and delivers to the client a written report of findings. The client then uses the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase. The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components

An inspector will check the roof, basement, heating system, water heater, air-conditioning system, structure, plumbing, electrical, and many other aspects of buildings looking for improper building practices, those items that require extensive repairs, items that are general maintenance issues, as well as some fire and safety issues. However, it should also be noted that a home inspection is not technically exhaustive and does not imply that every defect will be discovered.

A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of a house. It is not an inspection to verify compliance with appropriate codes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Home Inspections-A purchasers best friend!

It is mind blowing how some people spend hundreds of thousands on purchasing a home but struggle to pay a nomimal fee for a home inspection. This story is a great example for why you should insist on getting a home inspection performed before you finalize that deal.

Mice infest Winnipeg woman’s $1M house she just bought – http://ca.news.yahoo.com/winnipeg-womans-1m-house-infested-mice-015050120.html

A Winnipeg woman says she was shocked to find the $1-million house she recently bought has a mouse infestation so severe, that she has to pay big money to have all the insulation ripped out.

Carrie Forsythe said that after she took possession of the south Winnipeg home in September, she started opening up the walls to renovate it.

That was when she discovered her 5,000-square-foot house was a massive mouse nest, she told CBC News.

“All you see is just feces and urine, just puddles and piles,” Forsythe said.

“The whole vapour barrier is just filled with this nest.”

Forsythe said that for health reasons, she will have to spend at least tens of thousands of dollars to have the mess cleaned up properly.

Every centimetre of drywall has been torn out so that exterminators can remove all the soiled material, and disinfect the building studs and other areas where there was mouse activity.

The house will then have to be reinsulated, and the vapour barrier and drywall will have to be replaced.

“Now I have a shell, which I love, and it will be clean. But someone’s got to help me,” Forsythe said.

CBC News went on an independent tour of Forsythe’s home with Abell Pest Control’s Shaun Jeffrey, who said the mouse infestation is the worst he has ever seen.

“Oh my God … this is years, years in the making. This is not new,” he observed.

Both Jeffrey and the CBC News crew had to wear respirators while walking around the gutted house.

Jeffrey said the insulation on every level of the house contains mouse feces and urine, and all of it must be removed.

He estimated it would have taken about five years for the infestation to reach this state.

Forsythe said that after she bought the home in May, the previous owner and his family were still living there until she took over possession in September.

Forsythe said she did not get the home inspected before purchasing it, but she did go in with contractors, engineers and architects several times before the handover and no one noticed anything wrong.

Now, she said she will likely have to sue the previous owner.

The previous homeowner told CBC News he did not know anything about a mouse problem, adding that he would have never sold the house if he did.

Forsythe believes he had to have known, but Jeffrey said it is possible the previous owner may not have seen mice in the house, which was constructed with thick walls and thick insulation.

A spokesperson for the Manitoba Real Estate Association says the issue will likely have to be settled in court.

The association is urging all homebuyers to get an inspection done before making their purchases.

Ari Marantz, a certified home inspector in Winnipeg, said a proper inspection might have caught the mouse problem, although it is not normally on the checklist.

A home inspector would have seen red flags suggesting a mouse infestation, and a followup might have identified the problem further, Marantz said.

Marantz said a mouse infestation of this magnitude is rare in Winnipeg, but it occurs more frequently in rural areas.

Forsythe’s house is located just outside the Perimeter Highway, on the outskirts of the city.
