When people step up to help a loved one who is struggling due to illness or age they typically have good intentions. Yet this doesn’t always translate to doing good for the person they love when they accidentally hurt their feelings or take away a feeling of independence.

In order to empower and enrich someone’s life as you assist them, a person-directed approach to care can help both of you. We’ve compiled a list of suggestions in this chart with a list of This (Do’s) and Not That (Don’ts). It’s all about quality of life for all people involved in the caregiving situation.

Take a look and see if you’re doing more a lot of “not that” and need more “this” in your caregiving relationship.
