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.

Pat, God bless you for this blog, my siblings and I are striving to navigate the caregiver journey for both parents to give them the dignity and grace and care that we received from their hands as children. I look forward to visiting often.

I think we need this for my dear MIL now and more in the future, I'm sure. Right now I don't even think we know all of the right questions to ask, so any resource will be helpful.

Pat, thanks for your insights on this! So many of my friends are beginning to wrestle with their parents aging. I'll point them towards this resource!
