When Your Loved One's Aide is a No-Show
In this episode of Eldercare Illuminated, host Lenore Tracey talks about what to do when your regularly scheduled aide doesn’t make it in for his or her shift.
It happens to everyone at some point. The caregiver doesn’t show up, and the day’s schedule is out the window. It doesn’t matter if the reason for the snafu is totally understandable - appendicitis, the trains aren’t running, bubonic plague. It still wrecks your day.
With a little preparation, a plan, and a sense of humor, you and your loved one will manage!
