Building Your Team in Your Caregiving Season

  1. Building Your Team in Your Caregiving Season Rayna Neises 22:40

Happy National Self-Care Awareness Month!  Rayna Neises, ACC, host, reflects on the thoughts shared during last week’s interview with Jammie Johnson, The Caregivers Friend.  This week Rayna expands on the suggestion Jammie provided regarding building your tribe or team:

  • To add to the care team, remember to just ask.  Check with:
    • extended family
    • companion care companies
    • church family
    • personal care professionals
    • volunteers
    • senior centers
    • day stays
  • What tasks are you not enjoying and how can you get those off your plate?
  • When asking for help, keep in mind the type of Caregiver and what their services are.  Ask questions and be clear as to what you are looking for.
  • To do this season well, you must have help.
  • Provide a list of tasks to equip the helper to be successful.
  •  A variety of people will bring out different things in your loved one’s personality.
  • Visit and take the Caring Quiz.  Each member of the HOPE team has their strengths.
Rayna Neises A Season of Caring

Rayna Neises understands the joys and challenges that come from a season of caring. She helped care for both of her parents during their separate battles with Alzheimer’s over a thirty-year span. She is able to look back on those days now with no regrets – and she wishes the same for everyone caring for aging parents.

Rayna is the author of No Regrets: Hope for Your Caregiving Season, an ICF certified coach, the host of “A Season of Caring” podcast, Positive Approach® to Care (PAC)Independent Certified Trainer and speaker who is passionate about offering encouragement, support, and resources for regret-free caring aimed at preventing family caregivers from aimlessly wandering through this important season of life.

Rayna lives on a farm in southeast Kansas with her husband, Ron, and small pack of adorable dogs. She is the baby of her family, but most would never guess that. She is a former teacher who enjoys crafts of all kinds and spending time with her grandkids most of all.
