Providing you with helpful tips that are generic like be compassionate, listen attentively, or get enough rest can definitely guide you toward being a better caregiver. However, the AARP has gathered caregiving tips from the community that are insightful and can help you get over challenges you might face.
First, keep important numbers handy. Although we live in an age of smart phones where all numbers can be stored in one device, it is still a good idea to have list of important numbers around for emergency, in case the mobile device malfunction or lost. Next, rely on the pharmacy. There are different services at the pharmacy that you can use to make it more efficient. For example, services such as order refills, their automated phonelines, and drive-through drug pick up to your advantage. Finally, keep a journal so you can document events that are happening for future reference if there happens to be a change in caregiver and any conflicts, you can go back to journal.
