TIPS FOR CAREGIVERS:

from managing tasks to motivation

 

This section brings you tips & tidbits for caregivers that caregivers themselves have tried & have gotten good results.  The aim is to make life easier, whether by saving time or eliminating unnecessary effort.  I welcome suggestions for all sorts of tasks because it means that I may find a shortcut or that something that sounds great, isn't.  Especially when you are placed in a new situation sooner than you planned - or didn't plan at all! - it's good to know how others handled the job.  These tidbits include addressing things that result from a disablilty or condition and of which you may not have thought - such as difficulty in opening containers or lifting large drinks.  Of course, not every tip will work for your particular situation, but try different approaches until you find a method that works for you - then let us know about it!

If you have any tips that have helped you get the job done more efficiently, we'd love to hear from you!  Email your submissions to:
