Chapter 12. Dealing with Eldercare > Finding Time to Care for an Aging Relative

Finding Time to Care for an Aging Relative

How much time you'll need to spend on your caregiving endeavors will depend on several factors including how much help your elder needs, where your elder is living—in his own home, in your home, in a retirement community, or in a senior care facility—and how much of the care you'll provide personally. On average, a caregiver devotes 18 hours a week toward assisting the elder. Our goal here is to show you some practical ways to work this new time commitment into your schedule, as well as some creative ways to handle your added tasks more efficiently.

To do list

  • Assess what help your elder needs

  • Determine tasks and frequencies

  • Schedule tasks in your planner
