AARP guide preps families for caregiving

By elderlaw

AARP offers a wide range of excellent resources for families with aging loved ones.caregiving

One I really like is the Prepare to Care, A planning guide for families.

I like that is starts with, “Caring for a family member or close friend is one of the most important roles you’ll play.”

I like that it preps readers for the changing days and years ahead in this task with:

“No matter where you are in the journey of family caregiving — just beginning to anticipate a need, helping coordinate a big move or taking care of a family member full time — having a good framework to help guide you and your loved one will make the process easier.”

I think most of all, I like that it stresses the most successful planning puts the needs and wants of the involved person at the center of all considerations:

“The most effective family caregiving plans are made with the person you are caring for at the center of discussion,” the guide says.
