As a caregiver, you need to communicate with many people. You need to connect with family, friends, co-workers, employers, health care professionals, insurance companies —and the primary concern which is the care recipient.
Constructive and effective communication is key to your success. When your communication is clear, assertive and constructive, you’re more likely to be heard and get the responses you want.
To accomplish that, you’ll need to stay organized, have patience and control conflicting emotions . Your stress level and added responsibilities are going to make it harder to stay focused.
