Caregiving can all too often be focused on the mundane. Countless hours of the caregiver are consumed by paperwork and more.
You would like to think you are doing something valuable or noteworthy. Yet, time spent “on hold” quickly becomes hours. Paperwork becomes a full time job.
Not only do these details distract from the human side of caregiving but also they dramatically shrink your available time for housekeeping, employment, parenting, yard and garden, and the other responsibilities of a caregiver.
Every caregiving situation is unique. I know for me hard work and efficiency isn’t always enough. Creative thinking and approaches are necessary to “create” time.
Caregivers MUST “create” time.
