Prep Dish founder Allison Schaaf talks about her recent experience of becoming a caregiver for her mom after an accident. 4 practical tips to prepare.

In this episode host, Allison Schaaf shares her recent experience of becoming a caregiver for her mother. Specifically, she goes into 4 helpful things to have in place for older relatives (and yourself) in planning for the future.

4 Helpful To-Dos Before Becoming a Caregiver:

1. Understand Parents’ Wishes: Have the conversations around how they see the next 10 or 20 years playing out. Where do they want to live? How do they feel about assisted living or nursing home care versus living at home? Get things in writing if possible.

2. Organize Passwords: Make sure their passwords are written down in a safe location or in a password manager they can share with you.

3. Financial Accounts: It’s helpful to have a list of all of their financial accounts. 

4. Power of Attorney: Having in writing who should be taking over things and how things should be handled is very important. The more detailed, the better. Having a will is of course also important.

    Love this!! As a nurse having seen this with patients and experiencing this first hand with my 94 year old dad this is wonderful info. SO many families do not know this information and it can be very hard on them when they are faced with the situation. Thank you for this and all the pod casts!!
