If a family member is already providing caregiving to a loved one and a change in the care plan needs adjusting or if circumstances thrust your family into a group caregiving role, making sound well thought out decisions as a group can be fraught with difficulty. Families need to collaborate, problem solve, and come to a consensus around decisions before a caregiving plan is initiated or revised. I will share best practice tips for families to consider when making reality - based decisions for their loved one.
