Caregiver’s Corner

Michelle Wunsch, RN, MSN, AHN-BC

Caring for a family member or close friend who is aging or ill is one of the most important roles you can play in that relationship—and one of the most complicated.

The caregiving can happen suddenly with an accident or disease diagnosis or start gradually with driving your loved one to get groceries or to see a doctor. Later, you may find yourself preparing meals, assisting with physical needs, handling their finances, or taking time to address their growing needs. This will often leave the caregiver exhausted.

Whether you’re just beginning to anticipate a need or taking care of a family member full time, these tips, resources, and checklists can help you get organized and find support on your caregiving journey. Remember: Just take it one step at a time.

It’s time to learn how to find time to care for you!
