We're talking about setting caregiver goals so we can appreciate the great job we're doing.  Caregivers do so many different jobs. Social worker, recreation leader, chauffeur, nurse -  all things people get training for. There are also no real goals attached to the "job" of caregiving.

What are the five main caregiver goals?

Safety and comfort.  Your loved one didn't burn the house down and they're in a comfortable environment, congratulations, you've met your goal.

Meeting your loved ones daily care needs. Did they have at least one good meal, they're relatively clean, and dressed?  If you were able to meet their daily needs, you've done your job.

Contented Involvement.  The person you're caring for doesn't need to be happy all the time. If they have moments of joy or moments of contented involvement like petting the dog, folding towels, something that gives them purpose, you've done your job.

Purpose. Having a sense of fulfillment. Even if we have dementia regardless of the stage we don't lose the need to have a purpose in life. Making up tasks might be a way to help them have fulfillment. Peeling vegetables, emptying the dishwasher, whatever they can do, let them do it.

Listening to this episode will be quite beneficial to caregivers. It will help alleviate stress and frustration.
