Poll: Do You Have a Caregiving Back-Up Plan?

“Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans.” ~ Allen Saunders

Certainly, caregiving changed your life plans. It also demands planning and scheduling. And, then, when bad weather or flu or another emergency gets in the way, it demands a Plan B (and sometimes a Plan C and D).

In this week’s poll, sponsored by Caregiving.com and eCareDiary.com, we ask: Do you have a caregiving back-up plan? After voting, please feel free to share additional thoughts and any back-up plans you have in our comments section.


  • We’ve got articles to help you create back-up plans here.

    Today I am reminded of how important/mandatory a back up plan is. We had someone scheduled to come on Sunday to be with my mother so that we could go to church together and then out for lunch. I just received a call that they can only come for part of the time. I need a back up plan in place so that I have someone to call to fill in the gap. It’s interesting how the back up plan can also need tweaking. Some of the options from my back up list will no longer work because my mother’s needs are now greater.
