Welcome to 2019 the Year of Caregiving Support.
When Caregiving Becomes Too Much
Dear :

Welcome to 2019 the Year of Caregiving Support.

How many of you have made New Year’s resolutions? Is one of your goals to become a better resource for your clients? If yes - I solve caregiving problems. I can help.

2019 is my self-proclaimed Year of Caregiving Support because supporting caregivers is one of my personal resolutions and a lofty goal.

Caregivers are overwhelmed and burned out. If you are caring for a family member you know this to be true. The clients who come to your office for estate planning projects probably express similar concerns.

Caregiving Support Tips
The focus of this month’s newsletter article is helping caregivers to cope when caregiving becomes too much. We all have days when life is crazy, work may feel like too much, family issues may feel like too much. Days when life is simply too much – some of these ideas also apply.

Five Things to Do When Caregiving Becomes Too Much
Unexpected challenges fill the lives of caregivers with days when caregiving becomes too much. Most caregiving days are challenging. Days are consumed with problems and frustrations about things that continually go wrong. On days when caregiving becomes too much, these five things may offer solutions for immediate relief and support actions to balance caregiving stress.

In caregiving, having a Plan A, a Plan B, and a backup plan is critical to avoid unnecessary stress. I find that when I role play worst case scenarios in my mind—the worst case rarely happens. If something unexpected arises, I am well-prepared to respond calmly and logically because I have thought of the problems that might arise. Preparing for different scenarios is much better than being totally unprepared and responding negatively.    CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

Caregiving Blog: Roles and Responsibilities
Uncertainty about roles and responsibilities are concerns of family caregivers. These concerns include 1:1 care, emotional and social support, and care monitoring, coordination, and advocacy. Physical stress, worry, and emotional overwhelm are shared caregiver experiences that result from long lists of care responsibilities that never seem to end.  CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
