This blog is dedicated to all my caregivers! It aims to provide caregiver education that will allow caregivers to promote independence and a safe environment to an elderly loved one as well as minimizing caregiver burnout.
I started this blog when I decided to share my own experience of becoming a semi-caregiver to my elderly grandfather who moved into a unit at my apartment building. Fortunately, my professional background as an occupational therapist helped him adjust to his new apartment with environmental modifications and optimal home set up that maximizes his safety and promotes his independence. I hope this blog can give tips and tricks to others who are in a similar situation of helping their elderly loved ones.
The goal through this blog is of course to educate others, but I hope to start a private consultation service that I am working on right now! This would include in home evaluations or tele-therapy for those who are not local to Los Angeles. Please let me know if this is something that interests you (firstname.lastname@example.org) and – stay tuned!
