A starter’s guide to caring for a loved one

caretakers and the elderly

Caring for a family member can be a daunting experience, especially at the beginning. It’s crucial to keep these caregiving principles in mind:

• Create a routine and stick with it. A routine provides something familiar, making the transition easier for everyone.

• It takes a village. It’s difficult doing everything alone; assign tasks to loved ones to ensure consistent quality care.

• Care for yourself. Caregiving can be exhausting – it’s important to practice self-care.

At Pennsylvania Health & Wellness, we believe it’s important to remember to take the caregiving process one step at a time and to know what resources are available.
