Family Caregiving 

To help you close the sale, as handouts for presentations, or to support your client's family members, these handouts address common caregiving issues and concerns.  

When a loved one needs help (10 warning signs. What help is needed? Creating a team)
"I don't need help!" (Motivational interviewing skills when older adult refuses help. Concerns about cost or control. Concerns about price or privacy.)
Caring from a distance (Four long-distance strategies. Making travel less stressful. Visits: More than just business.)
Conquering guilt. Becoming resilient (The resilient family caregiver. Too much empathy? Setting limits, nicely.)
Changing your mind about stress (When circumstances are beyond your control. Working smarter. Living with uncertainty.

Common caregiving emotions: Worry, anger, negativity (Curb your negative thinking. "Sometimes I feel furious!" When the worry won't stop.)
Staying positive (Adding humor to caregiving. The habit of happiness. Focus on the rewards of caregiving.)
Managing money (What you need to know. Tips and helpful tools. Talking about money with your parents.)

Health care planning

These handouts are written to anyone who needs an advance directive. Can be the family caregiver, or the older adult (client). If your state has a POLST (or MOLST or MOST or ...) we will configure the handout to reflect the name of your official document. And if your state does not have special physician orders, the first handout is for you! 

Health care planning (The advance directive. Choosing a decision maker. If you are chosen.)
Health care planning and the POLST or MOLST or MOST or ... (The advance directive. Choosing a decision maker. The POLST, or MOLST, or MOST....)
Fall prevention
We have two handouts for you. The first is for people who are at risk for falling, or maybe have fallen already, but don't seem to be overly frightened. The second, emphasizing independence, is for people who have more extreme mobility issues (e.g., walk with a cane) or who are very fearful and setting themselves at greater risk for falling in the future. 
Preventing falls (Maintaining balance. A home safety review. Balance exercises.)
Independence: Staying mobile on your feet (Start a safe walking routine. When Dad resists a walker. If Mom is afraid of falling again.)

Dementia

This series provides advice for various stages of cognitive impairment as well as handouts to assist with common behavioral problems.

Living with early-stage dementia (Balancing safety and independence. Dementia and advance care planning. The ability to make decisions.)
Living with mid-stage dementia (Avoiding the "war of the wardrobe". Mealtime and dementia. Bathing and dementia.)
Living with late-stage dementia (Visits and meaningful activities. Music: The universal language. Nonverbal signs of pain.)
Living with final-stage dementia (Dad can't brush his teeth. Frequent infections. Hallucinations.)
Difficult situations (Embarrassing behaviors. Distraction techniques. "Lie to my mom?")
Wandering (How to discourage wandering. Preparing for a safe return. Engaging activities.)

Hospitalizations

Useful for planned hospitalizations, these handouts can also be given to discharge planners and other surgical or hospital-based referrers. The one on coming home from the hospital is especially helpful for reducing readmissions. You might also want to pair that with disease specific handouts such as Living with COPD or Living with Heart Failure. These two handouts (below) cover ways to monitor and prevent flare-ups for each of the high readmission diagnoses.

Before going to the hospital (Choosing a hospital? Look to the stars. Preparing for a hospital stay. If you are a health care proxy.)
During a hospitalization (Walking your way out of the hospital. Keeping a clear mind. Advocating for a good night's sleep.)
Coming home from the hospital (Making the transition home. Medication review. The post-discharge appointment.)

Common Medical Conditions

Whether it's a health observance month, or you simply need to connect with referrers or support clients, these handouts assist families in doing their part to keep loved ones healthy and ease transitions home after the hospital. 

Preventing Colds and Flu (Preparing ahead of time. It's flu season. Preventing pneumonia.)
Living with COPD (Preventing flare-ups. COPD warning signs. Sing a song for COPD.)
Living with Heart Failure (Avoiding crises with heart failure. Addressing fatigue. Avoiding salt.)
