Planning Needs Questionnaire

Decisions as important as senior care should be made based on facts and needs - not emotion and guilt. Proper planning allows everyone, but especially the senior, to be involved in the choices.

Question 1 of 6

Caregiving Time Spent Questionnaire

UNDERSTANDING YOUR ROLE AS A CAREGIVER

Because caregiving needs tend to increase over time, so too does the amount of time involved. Many caregivers don’t realize how quickly this time adds up. A first important step is to consider all the care you are currently providing, and then to begin to plan for the future as needs change.

Please take this 10-question quiz to help determine your current level of support. Be forewarned—caregivers are often shocked at the amount of time spent caring for a loved one. Regardless of your current level of support, we encourage you to actively track your hours and revisit this quiz periodically, as a way to monitor changes and to help determine when it’s time to seek help.
