Developing A Plan

After identifying your family member’s needs, it’s time to adapt your living space and lifestyle as needed to accommodate any necessary changes to meet your family member’s physical or mental needs. In some cases, living quarters require no significant changes. In other circumstances, a home needs major renovations to accommodate a wheelchair or walker for someone who can no longer walk. When developing a plan, the caregiver looks at the needs of all affected parties, determines priorities, and decides what to do when.
