Being a family caregiver is a big job with a lot of responsibilities. Often medical professionals will ask how your care recipient has been eating, sleeping, evacuating, ect. since their last visit. It’s difficult to remember what happened last week, much less this morning! This is where a simple daily caregiver log book comes in handy.
We recommend printing a month’s worth of sheets at a time and put them in a 3-ring binder somewhere handy, like the kitchen counter. Within a few days, you will find logging your loved ones’ daily activities is a breeze. Within a month, you may start to notice patterns in their behavior which you can share with relatives and medical professionals. Log books like this can also help you pinpoint when certain behaviors begin or end.
