  • For most, the art of caretaking is a learned trade. Being a caregiver may never stop be overwhelming, but the amount of up-front learning and research that is required is exceptionally remarkable. Fortunately, there is a substantial amount of resources available online for beginners, intermediates, and expert caretakers alike. We have compiled a list of 10 of our favorite resources online that you should be following if you’re not already.

  • Nursing home and senior living communities have long been a popular option for aging adults. There are a wide range of living community options for adults, depending on the type of care and level of activity that is needed. However, care facilities have recently been in the news as being a hotbed for the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). According to AARP, surveys indicate that nine out of 10 people prefer to stay and age in their own homes.

  • While in high school I watched my mom become the primary caregiver for an aging grandmother who had multiple serious health issues. I was able to sit down with her and ask real questions about what it is like to provide care to an aging parent. 

  • Choosing a Father’s Day gift for an elderly dad or grandpa can be a difficult task. It can be hard to know where to begin, but with a little thought and planning you can find the perfect idea for your aging loved one.

  • Whether providing self-care or caring for another, the task can be demanding of time, energy, and resources. Fortunately, there are dozens of Home Medical Equipment (HME) products and caretaking skills that can be obtained to alleviate these demands while increasing patient safety and independence. 

  • As much as we at Stander preach “fall prevention” we understand that for most, falling is not a question of if, but rather when. After a hospital stay or emergency room visit, returning home is often a scary and stressful experience for a caregiver. After a fall there will be new limitations and precautions that will need to be taken to ensure the safety and well being of the person who has fallen.

  • Dehydration is a serious but often over-looked threat to the elderly. In fact, a recent study shows that 48% of older adults admitted into hospitals at emergency departments had signs of dehydration. As you care for an older adult, it is especially important to monitor their water intake and prevent them from suffering dehydration.

  • The novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has certainly changed our way of life. As we attempt to regain any resemblance of normalcy, it is important to continue practicing safety precautions to keep our loved ones healthy. This includes evaluating how we look after the older adults we care for.

  • OUR FEARLESS LEADER | 08 MAY 2020

    Traversing this unprecedented worldwide pandemic has been nothing short of a nightmare for the leaders of our countries, businesses, healthcare organizations and so on. The chaos and uncertainty have brought me to reflection on the life and leadership our “Fearless Leader” that we lost much too soon two years ago.
