Create a care plan 

Creating a care plan will help you keep track of your parent’s needs and medications. Include information such as their medical history, medications, allergies, and any special needs they may have. You should also include a list of their daily activities, such as bathing, eating, and taking medications. iStratus makes it easy to store this information so that you have it with you at all times.

Delegate tasks 

Don’t try to do everything yourself. Ask for help from family and friends. If you have siblings, you can divide up the tasks. You can also hire a professional caregiver to help with some of the more difficult tasks, such as bathing and dressing.

Take breaks 

Caring for an aging parent can be stressful. Make sure to take time for yourself to relax and recharge. Go for walks, read books, or spend time with friends and family. You can also join a support group for caregivers. We know this can be easier said than done, but trust us.  You will be able to serve your parents better if you take the time to take care of yourself. They wouldn’t want you to be in a constant state of overwhelm.

Stay positive
