Caring for an aging loved one can be overwhelming, especially when a crisis occurs or a family member acts as the primary caregiver. Care Right strives to help families understand the benefits of proactive planning and ongoing discussions about the aging of their loved ones. No matter where you are in the journey of caring for your aging loved one, Care Right can help smooth out the inherent bumpiness that the aging process entails. We assist families all across the country in navigating the complexities associated with the aging process by developing a proactive Aging Plan, managing crisis situations, using Care Right’s Signature Grab and Go Binder, and providing needed support to struggling caregivers.
When an aging loved one experiences a medical crisis, family members are faced with a flood of emotions and need to make several critical decisions in a short period of time. If there isn’t a proactive plan in place, circumstances can quickly become overwhelming leaving family members unsure or confused about what to do or even what their loved one’s desires are. In the event of a crisis, having the ability to make informed decisions is critical.
With this current pandemic, families find themselves with more time on their hands and it’s a great time to make sure all of your affairs are in order. As COVID-19 continues, it’s likely you will know someone who’s been affected by the disease. Now is the time to make sure that your affairs/documents are in order and to be mindful of your aging loved ones that are in hospitals and care centers as well. Now is the time to have conversations about the “What if’s” with your family. What do you already have in place and where are the gaps in your planning? Is there a living will, a Power of Attorney, and what documents do you have in place? What conversations have you had as a family about end of life wishes? This should be a wake-up call for all families. If there was a perfect time to start an aging plan the time is now.
When a crisis occurs it can be overwhelming, exhausting, and emotionally draining if you don’t have a plan in place. The Grab and Go Binder is a plug and play solution that keeps all of your important documents consolidated in a single location and easily accessible at a moment’s notice. The purpose of this binder is to get your documents in order by filling out the pages in the binder, reviewing/updating them regularly, and sharing them with your family so they can be by your side during a medical crisis. If you have a loved one with impairment or dementia that time is now to gather information from them while they’re still able to communicate their wishes. The value of the grab and go binder is a plug and play solution; each of the 11 tabs has a checklist with suggested items to include in each section. Grab and Go Binder clients also receive email reminders to update their binder and they receive any newly created content to include in the binder. The tabs of the binder also work as a family meeting agenda for those families who want to facilitate their own family meeting. Keep in mind most families benefit from having a professional, neutral third, party person facilitate family meetings to help prevent the emotional baggage that gets in the way when families lead their own meeting.
