Tips? I want to put together a binder that holds everything to do with my grandparents.

Started by

Insight from people who have done this would be great. I want somewhere that I can keep a calendar with their montly events, medication schedule, doctors info, neighbors phone numbers, car insurance dates, things that my grandfather might not be able to keep up with him self any more and I can help with. If anyone has a method of keeping track of this I am open to all suggestions.

What a good idea!

I suggest you include information on all insurance policies, medical, life, property. Also do they have burial plans?

A list of their friends and phone numbers will be welcome when you need to notify them of a medical event.

If you are thinking about this possibly being used by other in-home care staff, then also include thinks like food allergies, strong food likes and dislikes, favorite television shows, bedtimes, etc.

Keep the conversation going (or start a new one)
