Caring for a vulnerable senior can be rewarding as well as challenging. It can increase our self-esteem to know that we are helping someone in need, but it can also burden us as we grapple with difficult decisions, behaviors, and the fact that we aren’t perfect caregivers. (Hint: No one is.) Caregiving requires continuous learning and adjustments, and no two situations are identical. However, becoming as organized as possible and making an effort to maintain that organization can help you relieve caregiver stress and use your time and energy more efficiently.

Establish a Daily Routine 

Everyone has a pattern in which they repeat some of the same tasks from day to day. However, how that manifests itself differs greatly from one person to the next. For example, some people start the day by getting up at 5am, engaging in exercises, meditation, and having a good breakfast. Some people might also have their days carefully planned out, while others choose to wing it. Finding a daily routine that best suits you will depend on your personality and situation. 

Some of the benefits of having a daily routine include:

● For vulnerable seniors, a routine can create feelings of safety and security

● For caregivers, structuring your days so that you’re repeating the same tasks at around the same time helps to keep your mind rested. After all, it takes energy to make decisions, even simple ones. 

● Knowing what is next also means that you don’t need to plan or play guessing games. 

● You can start looking forward to enjoyable activities – and be in a good state of mind for the less enjoyable ones too.

Make a To-Do List

Keep a list of daily duties in a notebook and attempt to do the most difficult ones first. Making a to-do list the night before helps you prepare for the day's events and enhances your time management. A to-do list can also help you manage your time by allowing you to see which things can be completed at the same time.

Schedule Self-Care

The events that must be done each day are not the only ones that require planning. You can also schedule other activities, such as self-care. This is effective since self-care is frequently overlooked in favor of more pressing activities. It's a lot simpler to set aside time for yourself and your own needs when it's written on your schedule.
