If your loved one’s care is now in your hands and you’re feeling overwhelmed with how to manage, consider making a care plan.
A care plan is a form that outlines someone’s health conditions, current treatments, and specific care requirements. The plan should summarize what needs to be done to meet the person’s care needs. A care plan can give you the confidence that you’re meeting your loved one’s needs by helping you organize and prioritize caregiving tasks.
The CDC states you should include:
Caregivers tend to forget their own health needs when taking care of a loved one. This can cause them to face burnout and other serious health conditions. As a caregiver, it is important to discuss your needs as well with your healthcare provider. The CDC states close to 2 out of 5 people face at least two chronic health conditions. Neglecting your health will not only negatively affect you but the person you’re caring for as well. Be sure to consider your needs too when discussing your loved one’s care plan.
