A Caregiver Logistics Tip and Contest Winner Announcement
I actually heard this idea while at the hairdresser and thought it was simply brilliant!
The woman who came up with this idea has an elderly mother still able to live in her own home but only with the assistance of different caregivers on various shifts during the week. Her mother has dementia so in order to keep track of the front door key from shift to shift, the woman’s daughter attached a lock box to the front door. After they are hired, the caregivers are given the combination for the lock box in which the key is kept. Upon arrival for their shift, they get the key out of the lock box and when their shift is over, they replace the key. Voila! No issues on where the front door key is or who has it!
The winner of the contest we ran the last few weeks in honor of National Family Caregivers Month was drawn randomly from the entries received. Thank you to all who participated!!
And the winner is (drumroll please) . . . Shiela! 🙂
