Being a caregiver for a family member or friend may be one of the most important roles you ever have.
Caregiving can present challenges. This is why it is important to have a care plan and practice open and honest communication.
You are not alone on this journey.
It is crucial for you, as a caregiver to know and understand how your personal support system works, which will help you access assistance more efficiently. A carefully selected care team is a key component of a loved one’s plan of care.
Outside of family and friends, government programs, nonprofits, and community resources are available for assistance. What caregivers often need most is good advice and an extra set of hands.
Whether caring for an aging senior, a loved one with special healthcare needs, or a Veteran, you may need assistance with one or more daily activities. Optima Medicare plans can provide support with basic care needs, including:
- Grocery shopping
- Board games
- Meal preparation
- Light housework
