Caregivers: Get tips for helping at doctor’s appointments

Working with doctors and other healthcare professionals can be an important part of being a caregiver. If you go with the person you care for to see his or her doctor, here are a few tips that will help you be an ally and an advocate:
  • Bring a list of questions that you and the person have prioritized, and take notes on what the doctor recommends.
  • Bring a list of all medicines and dietary supplements the person is taking, both prescription and over-the-counter, and include the dosage and schedule.
  • Always include both the person you care for and the doctor when you talk.
  • Ask the doctor to recommend helpful community resources.
