Here are some tips to help you navigate caregiving in these turbulent times:
1. Help your loved ones maintain regular routines as much as you can. Create a daily calendar for them that reminds them of the schedule including wake up, meals, exercises, therapies, and medications.
2. If necessary create reminders to wash hands regularly in the bathroom and kitchen. For those who may have trouble getting to the sink hand sanitizer and hand wipes are useful.
3. Make sure you have supplies. Talk to your pharmacy about having 30 days or more of whatever prescriptions are needed. And be sure to have plenty of soaps, disinfectants and hand sanitizers on hand.
