Are you one of the estimated 65 million people providing care to a chronically ill, disabled, or elderly loved one? If so, you already know how difficult it can be to provide the level of care you want to offer while still keeping your own life running smoothly. The Ultimate Caregiver Guide can help with a step by step guide and over 40 worksheet and checklists designed to help keep you organized and on track.
For a caregiver, knowing what to expect from each phase of the caregiving process can be invaluable. Our guide walks you through the following stages:
- Preparation – covering financial, medical, and estate planning.
- Family Care – addressing concerns such as creating a care plan, identifying resources, involving family members, and caring for the caregiver.
- Assisted Living and Nursing Home Care – explains the various long-term care options and the associated costs.
- End of Life Care – helps prepare you for end of life caregiving, planning a funeral, getting through probate, and managing grief.
Whether you had years to plan for your role as a caregiver or it was thrust on you in an instant following an unforeseen emergency, acting as a caregiver will directly and dramatically impact your life and the lives of your immediate family members for the foreseeable future. The Ultimate Caregiver Guide is designed to help you make sense of your new role of caregiver and help you fit that new role into your existing life.
