In the caregiver’s toolkit:
Medical professionals are resources
Posted on September 12, 2011
Doctors, nurses and therapists are valuable resources for caregivers.
Here are some tips to consider:
- Make a list of questions to ask your loved one’s doctors. Ask them to explain anything you don't understand.
- Go to doctor’s appointments with your loved one. As an extra pair of ears and eyes, you can help remember things later.
- Ask if you can record important conversations.
Take notes. If someone uses a word you don't know, ask them to spell it and explain it.
