Prepare to Care Today

Prepare to Care Today

The most common approach to caregiving for a loved one? Panic. But it doesn’t have to be that way with time spent preparing for the possibilities.

While no one has a crystal ball, we have created an infographic to help families and friends review what might need to be done in advance. Consider these essential aspects to anticipating the needs of someone as they age or live with a chronic condition:

  1. Communicate
  2. Research
  3. Financial
  4. Building a Care Team
  5. Legal Planning
  6. Safety Check

Talking with family about their desires ahead of time is the first step in putting plans into place that can ideally prevent everything from possible falls to caregiver stress in the future.
