I love all the resources that you can find online at places like The Alzheimer’s Association, but when you are in the trenches and hiring staff to help you take care of your loved one and it’s not through an agency you need things like timesheets …
“Create What You Wish Existed”
Normally I would create some super cute image that had that quote on it, but seriously I don’t have time for that!
And while the thing I wish existed – a cure of Alzheimer’s – I would love to create, I don’t have time for that!
Oh yeah, or that kind of medical training.
You can download the time sheets I created for the staff to taking care of Tom below.

Tidbit of Advice: Never, never, never fill one of these times sheets out for yourself. It will equal 36 hours a day. Perhaps that’s the how The 36-Hour Day: A Family Guide to Caring for People Who Have Alzheimer Disease, Related Dementias, and Memory Loss got named. A great book and worth losing a little, much needed sleep.
