Care Planning

"Plan your work…
then work your plan."

-Margaret Thatcher

Care planning - the act of preparing for care - allows individuals to better anticipate and address elder care and caregiving needs. This can pertain to caregiving resources for others, or yourself.

As an employee or student caregiver, your caregiving experiences are similar, yet uniquely different from other caregivers. Learn about personalized consultation and resource options so that you may “plan your (elder care) work…then work your plan,” in ways significant to you and the person receiving care. These choices can help you to better manage your University and caregiving responsibilities, and time demands.
