Family Emergency Plan
Caring for a family member (mother, father, grandmother or spouse) can feel like waiting for the other shoe to drop. When you are a caregiver making a back-up plan can feel completely out of the question but without a plan, you can feel at the mercy of the moment. With an emergency plan in place, you can manage the crisis effectively. What do you do if help cancels, a flu or virus hits, or even burn-out? Does it feel like you are constantly putting out the fires instead of staying ahead of them? During our time together we will discuss your greatest worry in an emergency, and brainstorm ideas for you to put into place so you can feel prepared as you move through your day.
