* I know what it feels like to step into caregiver shoes.
* I understand how it feels not to be prepared for this new role.
* Like you, I struggled with where to start first.
* I too, was troubled by frustration and confusion (and being a nurse, didn’t really help).
But after some struggles and challenges, through the 10 years of caregiving for my parents, I found success and I want you to find success as well.
I’ve been where you are. In my book, you’re the ‘hero of the story’ and I truly believe that my caregiving experience of learning, making mistakes, and finding the right resources can help you too.
My experience led me to publish the Senior Care Organizer. I consider the Senior Care Organizer to be a Guide to provide you the steps you need to take in order to organize, prepare, and make your own caregiving plan.
So let’s look at some “What If’s.” Are you asking any of these questions?
1. What if I fall? Who will take care of things?
2. What if I I can’t speak for myself?
3. What if I’m having trouble remembering to take my medications?
4. What if I don’t have family to help me? 5. What if my spouse is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s?
6. What if my Mother needs homecare?
7. What if I need to help my parents?
8. What if a loved one dies and I don’t know what to do next?
9. What if I can’t take care of my pet?
10. What if I need to move to a senior community?
11. What if I have an emergency? Do I have emergency contacts set up?
12. What if I don’t have enough money for my care?
What if I get organized before I need to? All of the previous questions can be answered or supported by planning and organizing with the Senior Care Organizer. After following the instructions, filling out the information, and reading the information in the Organizer, you won’t need to be a passenger on that “What If” Bus.
