Even caregivers catch a cold, and that might mean that you’re caught flat footed if you don’t have a plan ready to go for your elderly family member. These tips can help you to start putting a plan together, just in case you get sick and need to have someone else handle caring for your senior.
Know Who You Can Call
It’s a good idea to have a backup system in place all the time, just in case something comes up. If you get sick, there might not be a family member who could take over your duties in the same way that you do. That’s why you should always have another option in place. Elder care providers can help you and your elderly family member when you’re feeling great and just need a little help and they can be invaluable substitutes if you’re ever sick.
