Welcome to our new Caregiving Tips area! This new feature provides an easy way to ask for a caregiving tip or leave one for other community members. We hope you find this area to be a helpful resource for providing care for your loved one or for supporting other caregivers. Together, we can meet the challenges of caregiving in a positive, informed, creative and loving way.
On the main Caregiving Tips page you can filter for the section of your choice, i.e. Transportation and Mobility, Home Safety, Personal Care, Day to Day Activities, Difficult Behaviors, Getting Help, Getaways, Money Matters and Legal. You may notice these topics are also found in the Family Caregiving channel of aarp.org, and which can provide additional information. Additionally, you’ll see links to the right of the page under the ‘Tip Feed’ where you can bestow your knowledge to the community or utilize others’ expertise. Under the ‘Message List’ you will see a link for “Leave A Tip” and “Ask For A Tip” where your submitted tips will populate.
When you ask for a tip or leave a tip make sure to completely fill out the required details and choose a label so that your tip applies to the appropriate section.
Thank you for your contributions to making Caregiving Tips a valuable resource for all.
