As a caregiver, one way to manage your tasks and responsibilities is to set up a care routine. A care routine can minimise arguments, confusion, and reduce the stress of decision making. This makes caring for your loved one easier. This consistent schedule can include daily activities such as personal hygiene, mealtimes, taking their medication or checking of blood sugar, exercising, and socialising.
Involving your loved one when planning a care routine helps you to understand their needs and wants, preferences, and abilities. It also gives them a sense of participation in having a say in their own care and increasing their enjoyment. Be flexible and creative in the plan.
If there is more than one caregiver, do regularly update each other on the information and progress of your senior. This helps to reduce miscommunication and mismatched expectations in caregiving.
