Paperwork isn’t sexy, In the eighties, promises of four day work weeks and paperless offices were made thanks to the desktop computer. This promise has never happened, and despite cloud storage, paperwork is an endless chore we must all endure.
As caregivers, the endless piles of paperwork are one more tedious task that we must tackle. What is essential, what can we toss – it’s an infinite cycle, to be sure.
My Dad had a spreadsheet of his medications, allowing us to inform the hospital precisely what doctors had prescribed him. Having access to this document, however, wasn’t as easily achieved. Thankfully, my husband knew how to find the prescription spreadsheet on Dad’s computer.
In this episode, I talk to Roz Jones, a professional care provider, about all the documents we need as caregivers. We also get into the nitty-gritty of what legal documents we all need. We’re starting a brand new year (hopefully, much better than last year), so now is the perfect time to ensure our documents are in order.
Making paperwork sexy, if you will.
