Critical thinking is purposeful. It involves maintaining an open minded attitude & being able to think about different ways of understanding the information before you. Critical thinking also includes a process of evaluating claims & arguments in order to come to logical & consistent conclusions, assessing these conclusions against clear & relevant criteria or standards, & being able to spell out the reasons for the judgements you have made.’ (Turney 2014).
Self-neglect is any failure of an adult to take care of himself or herself that causes, or is reasonably likely to cause within a short period of time, serious physical, mental or emotional harm or substantial damage to or loss of assets.
Self-neglect can happen as a result of an individual’s choice of lifestyle, or the person may:
- be depressed,
- have poor health,
- have cognitive (memory or decision making) problems, or
- be physically unable to care for self.

Be vigilant, look out for the signs, and if in doubt report it!
