Caregiver Tip #12 – Arrange a Hand-Off Between Caregivers

Have a good hand-off if caregivers change over the first couple weeks. That will ensure whoever is care giving has all the information needed. Details on medication schedule, eating, resting, and any limitations should be discussed.

In the hospital, my family took turns being with me in the hospital room.  Then, for the first few weeks, my parents alternated with Kayla as my caregivers.  As they switched back and forth they would fill each other in on the current status and any changes to medication, activities, or doctor’s orders.  It was helpful to have them share so that we had consistency in care.
