You need a Care Plan when you start having to explain to others how best to support your elder. If other family members offer help while you’re elsewhere *yay*, it saves you having to explain what to do. The care plan also expresses the current preferences of the person needing extra care.
You’re there for your elder partner, relative or friend. Who is there for you? Do you have a support network, both physical and emotional? How do you manage your energy so you have enough for everything you need and want to do AND keep some in reserve for being occasionally awesome and/or emergencies?
