The Caregiver's Footsteps
Taking It One Step At A Time…
There are so many things to learn as a parent-caregiver that many of us have never encountered before. You may find yourself trying to multi-task a Medicaid application, therapy appointments, insurance forms, case management and social services, service providers, in-home workers, finances and funding issues, medications, medical procedures, multiple doctor and specialist appointments, equipment, monitoring your child’s health and/or behaviors, special diets and supplements, etc., and on top of it all you have to understand your child’s diagnosis and what it means for their life, your life and your whole family. Whew! It can be overwhelming!
