If you are struggling with time management while caring for someone elderly, try to rearrange your schedule. For example, if your elderly loved one is still living alone but cannot drive, arrange to help with errands while doing your errands.
*Make errands fun, instead of a hassle. Encourage your relative to have a list made, for easier, and quicker shopping. After completing errands, treat yourself to lunch or dinner with her.
*While enjoying a relaxing meal, talk about old times with your loved one. Laugh!
