How to Formulate Your Caregiving Plan
Are you worried about caring for your aging parents?
Does either of your parents need a lot of looking after?
Do you have a plan in place for caregiving?
According to Caring Village, you should start creating your own caregiving plan with these steps:
Step 1: Prepare yourself and your family
- Can you manage the time commitment?
- Can you manage the necessary financial obligations?
- Do you need to hire a trained professional to look after your loved one?
- Do you have a support system in place?
Step 2: Evaluate your aging loved one’s needs
- What kind of care do they need?
- When and how long will they need care?
- Are you properly trained to support your loved one’s daily challenges?
Step 3: Open up communication with all stakeholders
As a family, you must be able to make decisions regarding finances, the need for others to help with caregiving, changes in health, and reduced mobility.
Step 4: Find a caregiving team
You need to ensure that the team you gather will provide the best care possible for your loved one.
Step 5: Establish and implement your plan
Once you’ve established your loved one’s needs, implement your plan of action to ensure that their needs are met. Make it a habit to regularly check-in with your loved one and their caregiving team and adjust your plan as needed.
