Having the most physical skills does not equate to being the best caregiver. There are essential actions that makes you can take to make you an effective caregiver without being the strongest. Such characteristics have to do with a person’s organizational skills, problem solving, and having the right attitude and mental make up. For example, create a list of tasks so you can more easily prioritize, dividing work load if there are multiple caregivers, and so on. As caregivers, it is also a good to be proactive, that way you can prevent last minute emergencies and be adequately prepared for challenging tasks. Lastly, understand your strengths and limitations allows you to get help when needed, and know what you need a break to ensure the best quality caregiving for the care recipients.
