Tips

As a caregiver we want to equip you with the 5 essential  tools.

  1. Evaluate – the situation and determine what are the immediate needs and what can wait.
  2. Ask – When the time comes and before it gets to be too much ask for help and be ok with others helping, pride has no place when you family is struggling with a medical crisis. Whether is be from a friend, family member or nonprofit resource, ask. What help you could need help with meals, cleaning, yard work, watching the kids, ride to an appointment, repairs, etc… If you are struggling financial get immediate help before it gets out of control.
  3. Time – Take time for yourself don’t let yourself get burnt out. When you start to feel overwhelmed go for a walk, get a massage, go out for lunch with friends, read a book, watch a movie in point take the time for yourself.  You will be of no help if you can’t help yourself!
  4. Record – When going to appointments or any medical contact make sure to have a notebook or recorder to write down or record information given to you by the medical person. Along with a binder or file folder to keep all pertinent information such as medication current and past, medical records, doctors, specialists info, insurance info, etc…
  5. Advocate – for your loved one. No one can know or care more than the person going through it and the person who is their caregiver. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, to get a second opinion or decide on an alternative treatment. Do what is right for your loved one and their health and survival!
