Establishing some organization

It is very important during times of physical illness that everything else surrounding your client be kept in tip-top shape. If things get out of hand, it can only lend issues to an already insurmountable amount of problems in the household already.
So that you, as the caretaker, are on top of things, you will want to get organized and stay organized just in case the inevitable happens and your client takes a turn for the worse or passes away. Your duties may end right there, or if you have proven yourself reliable, your duties could potentially increase.
When you display that With Age Comes Respect, people know that you are trustworthy and will perform your job the very best that you can at all times. Whether anxiety is in the air, although you are very busy, you can still remain at the top of your game by doing some of the following tasks ahead of time:
• Ensure all needed paperwork remains in a spot where it is easily accessible;
• Set up a phone tree on the computer and share it with crucial family and friends so that together calls can go out to those that your client wants contacted;
• Sometimes a website will also do the trick because it is one concise area where all pertinent data relating to your client can be posted. A quick email that contains the web address can be very helpful. This way neither you nor anyone will have to repeat the same information over and over again during this very painful time.
