The ABCs of Caregiving

by Maryanne Curran

New Caregiver

Throughout our lives, we each perform a variety of different roles.  For me, I have been a daughter, sister, student, sales clerk, secretary, coach, and a writer.  The one role I thought I would never assume is now the main focus of my life – caregiver

My journey as a caregiver began in 2003.  My mother was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease.  Her health slowly deteriorated.  As it did, I learned more and more about how to properly and lovingly care for her.

When she passed away in 2008, I thought my caregiving duties were over.  But the Universe said, “No.” My 83-year-old father got hit with one health issue after another and again I donned my caregiver hat.  Because of this hands-on experience, I feel confident in claiming the title of Professional Family Caregiver.

If you’re facing the new role of caregiver, here are some tips to help you succeed in your new position.  While many of these tips pertain to caring for a senior citizen, they can be used for other family members as well.

Ask.  Admitting that you need help caring for your parent is hard.  If you are the primary caregiver, ask other family members to contribute some time.  Don’t take “No” for an answer.  Everyone is busy.  But being a caregiver for an ill person is more than one person can handle.  All family members need to pitch in where they can.

Banking.   Visit the bank where your parent does his or her banking.  Have your name added to their bank accounts so you may access funds if they are not able to.  Be sure to check with a financial advisor about any tax consequences for you.

Community.  There are many resources in your community.  Identify them and use them.  Neighbors, friends, and church members are often eager to help, but don’t know what’s needed.  In many towns, Meals on Wheels is available to deliver a nutritional meal for your parent.

Delegate.  As a caregiver, you may think that you have to do everything.  Delegate activities of lesser importance to others.  It will give you more free time to deal with the important healthcare issues.

Emotions.  Caregiving is an emotional ride. There will be days of anger, depression, loneliness, anxiety, and more.  These feelings are normal given the circumstances.  To balance the darker days, there will also be days of laughter, love, and joy.  Relish these days.

Forgiveness.  In the daily stress of caregiving, you’ll have your share of difficult days.  Forgive yourself when you’re having a bad day.  No one is perfect.  Every sunrise marks a new day.  Wipe the slate clean and start your day anew.

Government.  There are a multitude of agencies that can be a great resource for caregivers.  Check to find an agency near you.  If your town has a senior center, that’s also a great place to start.  Some states participate in programs that provide a monetary stipend to a family member who is caring for a senior who is ill.

Home Health Aides.  A good home health aide can be a blessing.  If using an agency, make sure they do a background check on new aides.  Make a list of things you want the aides to do.  You may have many different aides who cover different shifts.  Writing a list of their duties will make it easier to transition from one aide to the next.

Insurance.  Understand what medical insurance your parent has.  Find out what benefits he/she is entitled to and what will be the out-of-pocket expenses.Join.  A support group is a place where you can share and vent.  If you can’t drive to one, there are many online groups.  The group members know what you’re going through and can be a great sounding board.

Knowledge.  They say that knowledge is power.  This is never truer then when dealing with a health crisis.  Learn as much as you can about the disease your loved one is facing.  It will prepare you and teach you what symptoms to watch for.  If it’s a progressive illness, you can learn to identify the stages of the illness to assist with your caregiving.

Legal.  Make sure all your parent’s legal documents are up-to-date.  A will, power of attorney, and health care proxy are a must.  Consult an attorney to prepare these documents.

Medications.  You will need to become an expert about the various medications your parent is prescribed.  Ask for a 90-day supply of medication.  It’s often more cost-effective and will save you some trips to the pharmacy. Check with the pharmacist to ensure that any new prescriptions will not affect existing medications.

Nutrition.  Illness can often change the eating habits of both the person who is ill and his or her caregiver.  Make sure you both have healthy, nutritional meals during this journey.

Organize.  If you were never an organized person, it’s a skill you’ll need to master quickly. As a caregiver, you’ll multitask more than you ever thought you could.  The caregiving tasks may seem overwhelming.  Just take one at a time and you’ll succeed.

Patience.  They say that patience is a virtue.  As a caregiver, this is a necessary attribute to your skill set.  Everything you want to do will take more time than you think.  Be patient.

Question.  There are no dumb questions.  Don’t be afraid to ask doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel any question you have about the health of your parent.  Remember, they work for you.

Respite.  If your family member is sick, they become the center of your family’s world.  It’s vital that you find time for yourself and get a break from your role as a caregiver.  No one works 24 hours a day.  Make sure to schedule some time to take a walk, get a massage, or even go to a movie.

Spirituality.  Connect to your spiritual side.  Maintaining your faith or finding the faith that you lost is a significant coping mechanism on this caregiving journey.  Spiritual leaders will often make visits to your home to provide spiritual guidance to both you and your loved one.

Talk.  Talk about your feelings about being a caregiver to someone you trust.  Talk to your loved one about their feelings about their health.  Talking makes any relationship a closer and more loving one.

Understanding.  As a caregiver, you’ll be called upon to provide a deep level of understanding to your loved one.  You’ll need to evaluate each situation to determine what your parent needs.  Are they looking for a shoulder to cry on?  Are they in pain?  Are they lonely?  Is it something more?  You’ll need to learn to understand the cues so you can help.

Visiting Nurses.  Visiting nurses are the unsung heroes of the healthcare industry.  They save you trips to the emergency room. They can treat and help diagnose a myriad of health problems.  They can get through to a doctor immediately. If needed, they are a link to hospice.

Wishes.  If your loved one is terminal, you must have “the talk” with them.  It’s not easy, but it’s absolutely necessary.  You must talk about what their final wishes are including funeral arrangements, do not resuscitate instructions or quality of life issues.

eXercise.  Yes, we’re cheating with the spelling here, but it is the best example.  We all know the benefits of exercise.  As a caregiver, exercise is even more important.  You need to maintain your own health as well.  Exercise manages stress.

You.  While this is near the end of our list, YOU should be at the top.  You, as a caregiver, will be facing a whole new world of challenges.  That makes you a special and loving person.  You are providing help to someone who desperately needs it.  You rock!

Zeal.  Like anything done well, it requires a commitment to the project.  Caregiving is no different. Address your role as a caregiver with zeal.  Be an advocate for your loved one.

Brush Up on the Special Education Basics

Understanding the special education process is important for families of children with disabilities to make sure schools are complying with the regulations set forth in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

School districts are required to provide special education and related services to eligible children with disabilities. Special education is a set of services that children with disabilities receive to support their success at school. The services each student receives are based on their unique needs—and parents are allowed to give consent for the school to provide some services but not others.

Are you familiar with the process and what rights you have by law?

The Arc’s online Special Education Advocacy Curriculum provides the information you need to navigate the special education system. You will get an introduction to IDEA and early intervention services, learn what Section 504 is and who qualifies, find out what procedural safeguards are available for parents, and more.

Start the training now for only $99 and gain the knowledge to advocate for your student to receive the services and supports they need to succeed.
For people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
The Arc promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.

Navigating Disability and Mental Health: Tips for Supporting a Loved One with Mobility Issues

When it comes to disability and mental health, we often contemplate the physical impediments connected with being disabled. Though physical challenges are commonly associated with disability and mental health, the emotional and psychological effects can be equally as difficult to manage. Caregivers of disabled individuals may struggle to cope with their own emotions while finding ways to support their loved one. In this blog post, we will explore understanding disability and mental health; coping strategies for those who care for disabled individuals; creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels safe and accepted. By exploring these topics further together we can learn how best to provide meaningful assistance when someone close needs our help most.

Understanding Mobility Challenges

Mobility challenges can be difficult to understand and recognize, but they are an important part of many people’s lives as they age. It is vital to be cognizant of the various kinds, sources, and indications so as to give satisfactory help for those influenced.

Types of Mobility Challenges:

There are several types of mobility challenges that can affect seniors. These include physical disabilities such as arthritis or stroke-related paralysis; chronic conditions like multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease; and cognitive impairments such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Mobility may be limited due to various conditions, including weight gain, vision issues, hearing difficulties, instability, inadequate nutrition and hydration levels as well as a lack of physical activity.

The cause of a particular mobility challenge may differ depending on the type involved. Injuries, diseases and advancing age can all lead to physical disabilities; genetic susceptibilities may trigger long-term ailments; while diminished brain activity related to aging can cause cognitive impairments. At times, environmental elements like exposure to hazardous materials or toxins may be a factor as well, making the situation more complex.

Depending on the type and severity of a person’s mobility challenge, they may experience a range of symptoms including twinges when moving around (which tend to subside with rest), difficulty traversing long distances without assistance (particularly up inclines or staircases), weariness after brief intervals standing/walking/moving about (even if taking frequent breaks throughout the day), rigidity in joints/muscles when attempting novel activities (or returning after respite) , vertigo when shifting position abruptly etc., along with other potential indications such as depression or anxiety related behaviors which could indicate underlying mental health issues too.

It is important to understand the different types, causes, and symptoms of mobility challenges in order to provide effective support for a loved one. With this knowledge as a foundation, it is possible to move forward with practical tips and emotional strategies that will help both caregivers and those living with the challenge.

Key Takeaway: Seniors experiencing mobility issues may have a variety of conditions, including physical impediments like arthritis or paralysis due to stroke and cognitive impairments such as dementia. These can be caused by accidents, illnesses, genetics and environmental factors.

Supporting a Loved One with a New Mobility Challenge

When it comes to supporting a loved one with a new mobility challenge, practical tips for caregivers can make all the difference. It’s important to take the time to understand their needs and find resources that can help.

Offering emotional support is a key component of caregiving, ranging from offering words of encouragement to simply being present in moments when they need someone. This may include offering words of encouragement, listening without judgement, or simply being present in moments when they need someone there. Additionally, being mindful of how you communicate with them can go a long way; try using positive language and avoiding phrases like “you should…” or “you must…” as this can be disempowering.

It’s also beneficial for caregivers to educate themselves on different strategies for helping their loved one manage their condition. Things like physical therapy exercises and assistive devices may be able to improve mobility and reduce pain levels if used correctly—so it pays off to do some research beforehand. And don’t forget about other helpful services such as home health aides or transportation assistance that could provide much-needed relief during difficult times.

Connecting with those who have gone through comparable circumstances can be extremely beneficial. Not only will your loved one benefit from having access to an understanding community, but so will you. Seeking out online forums, support groups and mental health professionals can help everyone involved cope better while dealing with these changes in life

Assisting a beloved one with a fresh mobility issue can be hard and taxing, but it is crucial to remember that there are available aids. With the right strategies in place, it is possible for both caregiver and person with the challenge to cope successfully. As we move on from this topic, let’s explore how maintaining mental health and well-being during difficult times can make all the difference.

Understanding Disability and Mental Health

Disabilities may be physical, cognitive, intellectual, developmental or mental health-related. Physical impairments including those such as cerebral palsy, spinal cord traumas and amputations are categorized as physical disabilities. Cognitive disabilities involve a disruption in the capacity to think and comprehend. Intellectual disabilities involve limitations in both intellectual functioning and adaptive behavior which are typically evident before age 18. Developmental disabilities can cause a person to experience delays in their development or have difficulty learning new skills. Mental afflictions may consist of despondency, uneasiness and bipolar disorder.

Individuals with disabilities often experience unique mental health challenges due to their condition. These can include feelings of alienation from society, self-esteem issues caused by limited mobility or capabilities compared to those without a disability, apprehension about being judged for their differences, and lack of understanding on how best to handle their own condition and provide adequate care for themselves. Additionally, certain types of disabilities may make individuals more susceptible than others in developing particular mental illnesses such as depression or anxiety disorders because they are forced to endure the burden associated with managing a disabling condition while simultaneously juggling everyday life tasks like employment or schoolwork.

Understanding disability and mental health is a complex issue that requires knowledge, empathy, and support. Caregivers of disabled individuals can, with the help of suitable tools, come up with approaches to attend to their own mental health needs while furnishing quality care for those they cherish.

Key Takeaway: Disability is a broad term that encompasses many physical, cognitive, intellectual and mental health issues. People with disabilities may experience feelings of alienation or self-worth struggles due to restricted movement. These individuals may be more vulnerable to developing particular mental illnesses because they must cope with the burden associated with managing their disability while attempting everyday tasks like employment or schoolwork.

Coping Strategies for Caregivers of Disabled Loved Ones

Caring for a disabled loved one can be an arduous and emotionally taxing task, so it is essential that caregivers take measures to ensure their own health and well-being as well as the person they are looking after. It’s important for caregivers to take steps to ensure their own wellbeing is being taken care of, as well as that of the person they are caring for. Practical tips for supporting mobility challenges include things like making sure there is adequate lighting in the home, using assistive devices such as walkers or wheelchairs when needed, and ensuring pathways are clear and free from obstacles.

When it comes to addressing common mental health issues in caregivers, such as stress, guilt, or burnout, it’s important to recognize these feelings so they don’t become overwhelming. Taking breaks throughout the day can help alleviate some of this tension. Additionally, talking with friends or family members about how you’re feeling can provide much-needed emotional support during difficult times.

Finally, finding support groups and professional help is essential for those caring for a disabled individual. Support groups can provide a place for caregivers to connect with others who understand their struggles, exchange stories and gain insight from one another. Professional counseling services may also be beneficial if more intensive mental health treatment is needed due to stress or depression associated with providing caregiving duties over time. No matter what form of assistance you seek out – whether it’s joining a local support group or meeting with a therapist – taking advantage of available resources will make your journey easier and less isolating in the long run.

Caregivers of disabled loved ones can find strength and support in developing coping strategies that are tailored to their individual needs. By fostering an atmosphere of acceptance, we can guarantee all individuals the chance to maximize their abilities despite any disabilities they may have.

Key Takeaway: As a caregiver to a disabled loved one, it’s important to prioritize your own wellbeing and take steps to address any mental health issues that may arise. Taking advantage of support groups and professional help can provide invaluable assistance on this journey, helping make the experience less isolating while also allowing you to share experiences with others who understand what you’re going through.

Creating an Inclusive Environment for Disabled Individuals

Creating an atmosphere of acceptance and respect for those with disabilities is key to fostering a positive community. We can do this by educating ourselves on disability rights, understanding how to interact with disabled individuals, and speaking out against ableism when we see it. One way to show our support is through gestures such as smiling or offering a helping hand. It’s also important to be mindful of language; avoid phrases like “confined to a wheelchair” or “the blind person over there” which are insensitive and dehumanizing. Promote others, both those with disabilities and without, to be advocates for the movement.

Ensuring that disabled individuals have the necessary access to all areas of life is essential for cultivating an equitable environment, which includes providing physical accommodations such as ramps and elevators along with assistive technologies. This includes making sure that physical spaces are accessible; think ramps, wide doorways, elevators, etc., as well as providing assistive technology such as voice-recognition software or Braille keyboards where necessary. Additionally, employers should ensure that their hiring practices are fair so that qualified candidates with disabilities aren’t overlooked due solely to their condition.


Encouraging autonomy for those with disabilities is a vital element of cultivating inclusivity, enabling them to speak up for themselves instead of consistently depending on others. This starts by teaching self-advocacy skills from an early age, so children learn how to communicate their needs effectively throughout life regardless of any changes in ability level due to aging or illness later on down the road. Additionally, provide opportunities for independence wherever possible; things like taking public transportation alone instead of having someone accompany them every time they leave home will go a long way towards building confidence over time.
