Family Caregiver Preparedness: Mastering Caregiving Decisions

For five days beginning May 1, we’re sharing our thoughts about being prepared for a caregiving experience, for what happens during a caregiving experience and then the aftermath of a caregiving experience. I’m collecting data and stories on the topic of Family Caregiver Preparedness, or the lack thereof, and how it affects you, your caree, your caregiving experience, and your life overall.

Today, on our third day, I'd love to hear your thoughts about experiences with caregiving decisions. How often and how much can you involve your caree in decisions? What discussions about decisions can you have with the care team? How do you use financial planners, attorneys and mediators with decisions? How can you engage the family unit in discussions about decisions?

Please share your thoughts in our comments section below.

Thank you for sharing your experience! This helps tremendously as I continue to gather stories and data on this topic. I hope writing about it will be helpful for you as well.
