I'd like to find an easy way to keep track of the care I do for my mom. Any suggestions?

Wishiwashiking, wish I was hiking, too.

I am from the old school. Get an appointment book or steno pad [Staples and Amazon sell them] and write down what was done. No recharging :)

Are you looking to track when you actually do things like, laundry 8am, shopping 3-5pm...or track that you have done things like a check list or are you wanting to track your time like a paid caregiver would, 5/13 - 9-4? Is the purpose to make sure everything gets done and you don't forget something or to have a record of your value for lack of a better term (don't misunderstand there is no way to track your actual value but...) in case it's time to hire someone or you need to make a point to siblings or state for instance?

Are you able to use or have access to a spreadsheet on your comp? Using the ones referenced above as a pattern you can make your own tailored to your own needs. Don't use abbreviations - next month you might not be able to psych em out.

I've tried it many times and gave up just as many. Except for studying a special problem I wind up forgetting to fill them out or it becomes just one more damn thing to do. Inevitably I'd forget, then fall behind, will do it next or later or tomorrow first thing and all of a sudden it's a month ago and to hell with it. Just recently I had a 2nd monitor screen with 3 SS's to fill out......blah. Too many one more things.

Thank you, was trying not to reinvent the wheel, again. I do have access to spreadsheets.

Do you mean a financial records app, a health app, an activities app or...? You can always search the App Store and adjust what you find to your own needs.
