As a caregiver you are your loved one’s advocate, speaking up for them when they cannot, and working with doctors, nurses and hospital staff to understand their condition and treatment options.
To help your loved one make the best decisions about their care and treatment, be sure to:
While you are making sure that your loved one’s needs are being met, don’t neglect your own. Caregiving can be a stressful and time-consuming job. You may neglect your diet, normal exercise routine and sleep needs. Don’t be reluctant to ask for help in caring for your loved one. Find out more about how you can ease the stress of caregiving at www.caregiver.org.
