Be an effective caregiver

Agreeing to be the caregiver for someone who is ill or recovering from a procedure can be a full time job. It's important to help manage their care in a way that lets them focus on getting better, without overwhelming yourself in the process.

Start by getting organized, filing paperwork under key topics like medical care, benefits, resources, assisted living, nursing homes, etc. Keep the patient's medical history and medication list handy, along with notes about any instructions given and who gave them.
