Home Care Services Tips for Caregivers in the Sandwich Generation

To be a part of the ‘sandwich generation’ means to have parents while being a parent yourself. When your parent develops a need for additional assistance at home, it can be difficult to be a family caregiver when you have to tend to your personal life as well. Balancing your life as a parent and as a caregiver is never easy, which is why Visiting Angels Lewisburg shares some tips.

One of the first things Visiting Angels suggests is to remain organized. Not only does this help you keep track of everything that’s going on, but it also helps you maintain a sense of calm. To maintain your organization, Visiting Angels suggest to utilize cloud storage. Unlike saving important documents in a file cabinet or on your computer, cloud storage provides another net of security and protection from documents being lost. Visiting Angels recommends to keep records of your parent’s medical records and tests, living will, and power of attorney credentials on the cloud. This ensures that if something were to happen to the hard copies, you still have an electronic version that you can access at any time.

This is just one way to maintain your organization when you’ve become a family caregiver in the sandwich generation.
