A Caregiver Conversation by Carallel: Everything Caregivers Need to Know About Creating an Emergency Plan

There’s an old caregiving expression that goes something like this: Hope for the best, but prepare for the rest. 

It’s applicable to so many aspects of caregiving–but especially to emergencies. We all encounter them from time-to-time as caregivers, and having a plan in those moments can be worth its weight in gold. But how do you create one?

Matt Perrin, Carallel’s Director of Caregiver Engagement, is joined by Sheila Schultz, a Certified Dementia Practitioner and Carallel Care Advocate, to discuss everything caregiver’s need to know about creating an emergency plan.
