Most people don’t think that they are a caregiver or that this topic relates to them. However everyone is a caregiver. In the following video, I discuss this in more detail. If you have parents, kids, family members, friends or a spouse – guess what? You are a caregiver! Anyone who helps out someone that they care about is a caregiver and it’s not just limited to someone taking care of the elderly.
I recently did a Facebook Live Series called “Conversations with a Caregiver” focused on “Getting Ready To Care. In Day 1 of the series I went over what a caregiver is and how you can get better prepared for the present and the future so you can be of service to your loved ones. I’ve found that many have different ideas of how this topic relates to them.
I learned a lot in this role as a caregiver over the years and have come to the realization that the earlier you start thinking about planning for the future and start having the conversation with your family the better it is for everyone. Check out the video to learn more.
Now that you’ve had a chance to learn about what a caregiver is, do you think you are ready to start the conversation with you family about their future life plans? I would encourage you to just begin the conversation with your family. Don’t wait until something happens to start this talk. To help you get started, I’ve created The Caregiver’s Prep Guide. The prep guide includes a self assessment to walk you through the questions to ask yourself to get prepared and evaluate what you are already doing and what may be necessary in the future.
