How To Build a Caregiving Circle of Trust

Life in general, it’s all about team-work. But much more so when it comes to caregiving. 

Time and time again, the more frustrated and stressed out family caregivers I’ve worked with have been those that are going it alone.

The first thing is to get your head in the right place. This right mindset is the holy grail of caregiving piece of mind.

So start with this thought ice breaker: You Don’t Have To Do it Alone!

Creating your own Ocean’s Eleven caregiving crew is the goal here.

A group of people of different skills and circumstances who can help you deal with the day to day of caregiving.

Here’s how:

  • Recruit one or two family members (preferably people who got your back!) that can help you take respite at least once a week.
  • Find a dedicated and caring social worker. Even if you have to go through a few to find the one!
  • Hire a home care agency that can help you with both skilled/non-skilled help.
  • Create a list of nearby businesses that focus on senior care or that can make your life easier on the different aspects.
  • Get a transport option you can count on. 
  • Have your doctor-visit-day team ready and your day planned out.
  • Hire a Doctor who can make house visits.
  • Have at least one back-up person that can help in emergencies.
  • Connect with a travel agency that focuses on senior travel needs.

Depending on your circumstances you may not need all of these elements of your circle of trust team, but it’s a good start!
