About the author:
Dérahonon Djédjé has spent more than twenty years working as an au pair, babysitter, and certified home-health aide. Her extensive experience convinced her that caregiving is one of the most satisfying jobs in the world-but also one of the most stressful. She conceived The Caregiver's Log to help other caregivers and their employers improve communication and thus create the safest, most effective caregiving environment possible.
Senior caregiver Log
A customizable daily planner for families who employ caregivers for their elderly parents.
The Caregiver's Log (with 2012-2013 calendar) is a special daily planner designed to facilitate better communication and improve household efficiency for those who employ caregivers for their children or parents. The brainchild of a veteran caregiver, this customizable notebook is an indispensable organizational tool for a situation that can be stressful and chaotic on even the best of days. The planner allows employers to keep a detailed record of the responsibilities and tasks accomplished by their babysitter, nanny, or elderly parents' caregiver each day. This single tool eliminates the need for employers to verbally communicate every detail of their instructions with their caregiver, creating instead a central written record.
Compact and portable, The Caregiver's Log is divided into six easily navigated sections. The family rules pages provide a record of the individual house rules, dietary restrictions, and medical information. The employer's notes and assignment pages allow employers to detail instructions and reminders, as well as to provide positive feedback to their employees. Activities are tracked on the daily schedule pages, and the caregiver's daily note pages enable employees to provide an account of the day's activities and make notes of future needs. Daily costs can be tracked on the description pages, while special pages are reserved for marking important dates and recording emergency contact information. A glossary translated into English, French, and Spanish is bound to further broaden the appeal of this great tool, which also will be appreciated by physicians, pediatricians, and other secondary caregivers.
Not only will this specially designed notebook help caregivers perform their jobs well, it will ease management for employers, making The Caregiver's Log a vital part of any multi-generational household.
Chock-full of helpful worksheets and advice (tips & 35 Do's and Don'ts for the senior caregiver, nanny or babysitter) from the author, The Caretaker's Log enables employers to:
