Caregiver tip of the day – slippery jammies

Vickie Young shared her favorite caregiving tip today: silky pajamas.

We were talking about the value for family caregivers to taking a caregiving class – something really challenging for the typical too-busy-already family caregiver.

But as Vickie shared how much simpler care for her bed-bound father-in-law was with that one simple adjustment from comfy (but sticky) flannels to slippery satins, it made so much sense: who knows the tricks better than someone who’s been there before you?

Find a class and learn tricks of your own. Today, we have online classes for caregivers that make learning fit your schedule. In fact, with online learning you can take classes whenever it works for you, even at 4 in the morning.

In your own pair of slippery pajamas.
