Lorna NKT5 Stars Out Of 5A Great Organizational ToolNovember 25, 2014Lorna NKTQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Caregiver's Notebook is a powerful organizational tool for anyone caring for another person, whether it is a child with special needs or adult with complex medical care. This book offers in one place a way to organize a variety of important information that is accessible with the flip of a tab. From medical information and important tests to legal documents, this notebook has the capaciaty to contain a wealth of information. As a parent of a child with special needs, I wish I had ths years ago simply for tracking medications that were tried and the various results. In addition to the practical organizational information, there is spiritual support as well, including a Bible reading plan and prayer guide.
An added benefit of this guide is that it reminds caregivers of the types of information they may want to track. When faced with a new diagnosis, there is a sense of, "I don't even know what I am supposed to ask." This practical organizational tool helps you understand what is important information to track while sorting through a diagnosis. I highly recommend this for folks who need to bring organization to caring for another person.
Chantale DP5 Stars Out Of 5Invaluable tool for caregivers!November 21, 2014Chantale DPThe Caregiver's notebook is not your regular planner. It is an essential tool for caregivers. Are you are caring for a child with special needs, an elderly parent or a typical newborn? If so, The Caregiver's Notebook can help you stay organized. I am so impressed by how many organizational tools are included. Not only does it hold all the important documents and information that you need to have with you at all times. It will also give you inspiration and spiritual comfort.
I appreciate that it includes a three-year calendar and that it fits in a diaper bag or a large purse. Another benefit is that each section contains instructions for use, forms for recording pertinent information and extra pages for notes. You will also find pockets in the back for insurance cards, legal documents and test results.
The journey of helping a loved one can be challenging. Throughout The Caregiver's Notebook there are scripture verses and thoughtful devotionals to inspire and comfort you. There is also a bible reading plan and prayer guides.
Being organized can help relieve stress. What a blessing in a caregiver's life! It also makes a very thoughtful gift!
