The Must-Have for Family Caregivers: The Senior Care Organizer

Claudia Rumwell, a trained nurse, knows a thing or two about caregiving, having looked after her elderly parents for more than a decade. She saved every form and took every note, dotting every “i” and crossing every “t.” And now, she’s ready to share all that she learned on her “adventure” with those in the trenches.

Was your mother just diagnosed with Alzheimer’s? Has your husband’s Parkinson’s disease gotten so advanced that he can no longer dress himself? Not sure where to start or how to manage? Claudia’s Senior Care Organizer has what you need… without the information overload.

Think of it as your “problem-solver” when you’re wondering...

  • Where do I start?
  • What information should I have readily available?
  • Who can help me locate a place for my wife and me to live?   
  • How can I tell when a senior needs more help?
  • What if I need in-home care for my husband?
  • What are some ways to improve safety around the home?

The Organizer lays it out step-by-step.  It provides quick access to important information alphabetically. The included worksheets can be filled out or easily revised, then printed for storage in your own notebook.  It also provides you with resources, ideas and information for answering many of the questions you’re likely to have related to senior care. And talk about easy. All you have to do is download the interactive PDF file to get started.

Finally, a simple tool to help you get all of your ducks in a row.

No one can know what the future holds in terms of your loved one’s medical or physical needs. The Senior Care Organizer will allow you to be ready in the event of health care changes or an emergency. And, as Claudia points out, people who anticipate stepping into a caregiver role and having a plan of action feel less burdened during a crisis than those who have made no plans at all.
