Respite Care

It’s very important for the primary caregiver or family member to take some time off. I am off to enjoy the Memorial Weekend in Minneapolis. Planning this excursion involved some thought. Not just my personal itinerary but for the home health aide.  I found its very important to keep a running list of daily instructions and activities not just for myself but for anyone filling in.  No detail is too small.  I will leave the list from here to expand at another time.  Honestly its a work in progress.  You realize this when you try to explain what a typical day is like caring for a stroke survivor to someone.  Like trying to condense a daily routine into a one hour crash course.
