Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas to all of you. I know that most of my readers are plumb tuckered out about now. You've managed to buy and wrap the gifts, decorate the house, attend and supervise extra events for your children and/or aging parents, and cook a week's worth of food. I know. Me too. But in the midst of the chaos, I do hope you'll take a few minutes for yourself. And while you're at it, take a few minutes to seek the Lord who came as an infant to save us from our sins and offer us eternal life. Go ahead. Rest in Him. Breathe. Remember what this season is really about.

The Caregiver Organizer For MY Aging Parent

Do you care for an aging parent? Or do you coordinate caregivers for your parent? If you’re like me, you have binders and folders and notes and computer files and random notes here and there. It’s a challenge to keep up with, for sure. And if you are also responsible for children at home, oh my! 

I just received a review copy of a wonderful resource, and since it’s downloadable, you can still order for yourself or another caregiver before Christmas. The 79-page Caregiver Organizer For MY Aging Parent can’t figure everything out for you, it will help you remain organized. It will help you, the adult child, not only keep all the daily details together, but also track and organize your parent’s medical, legal, and financial information. It can also be used as a source of communication between you and any hired caregiver who may be assisting in your parent’s daily care. 

The Caregiver Organizer is a downloadable e-book, created in a pdf format that allows you to enter the information on the computer and then print it (my style) or print it and complete the forms by hand. When the info changes, reprint the page(s) you need. You’ll always be up to date. And it’s only $12.95. 

There's a lot of information I don't need yet, but that could change tomorrow. One thing I like about this book is that because it’s a download, I can print only the pages I need now, but have the others available when the time comes.  I’m going to start using my copy of The Caregiver Organizer for MY Aging Parent right away. It will be a huge help in the coming year. And best of all, author Melissa Bishop has offered my readers two wonderful resources.  

1.  Win a copy! Leave a comment on this page and on the evening of Wednesday, (December 22) I will draw one lucky winner – just in time for Christmas. Be sure you give me a valid email address so I can notify you.

2.  25% discount through Jan. 2! If you don’t win, use the coupon code HOLIDAY and you’ll receive 25% off. That’s quite a discount! 

Be sure to check out their website. They also have The Caregiver Organizer for My Child and The Caregiver Organizer for My Special Needs Child. Need a Christmas gift for a parent you know?
