Daily Schedule for Adult and Senior Caregivers

Julia Quinn-Szcesuil
March 21, 2018

Help your adult or senior caregiver plan typical days of activities, meals and medical needs.

When an adult or senior caregiver comes to your loved one’s home, there are lots of new routines and instructions to follow.

Help your caregiver learn the schedule by giving her this detailed list. Include things like when your loved one wakes up, any preferred resting, nap or meal times or even favorite television shows to help keep everything moving smoothly.

Use the Medication Prompting section to describe everything your caregiver needs to know about the person's medication needs. Keep in mind that most caregivers will only be able to prompt your mom or dad to take medications and not actually administer them. Include this schedule in your adult and senior care contract.
