Update makes this feature easier to access and use.
2020 has been anything but fun, but we searched the web high-and-low to find a few positive facts:
For many of us, the holidays include a lot of list-making: gift lists, grocery lists, who’s naughty and nice lists…and the lists go on and on. If you have an elderly parent or loved one in your life, there’s one other list you should think about including ….an ADL (Activities of Daily Living) Assessment Checklist. It’s important to consider how your loved one is getting along when performing daily tasks and skills on their own, and if your checklist brings up some red flags, it’s time to think about putting a support plan in place. Read more about what that list looks like and the signs that indicate your loved one may need some help.
Once the family has identified that a parent needs more help, the real work begins. Take time when you’re together for the holidays to talk about a real plan – a plan that includes family members and responsibilities for executing components of the plan. This may seem daunting, especially when family members are geographically dispersed. Here is where a coordination tool or platform becomes imperative. If you could have one place where roles and responsibilities are captured, important documents are stored in a safe and secure manner, calendars for important appointments and events are tracked and you could share special moments with that loved one through pictures and video, wouldn’t you want that tool on your Christmas list? eLivelihood is the Safe, Effective and Affordable Tool that helps your family Collectively Manage & Organize Care for Your Loved One.
