Juggling a job and caring for a loved one can be challenging, but it can be done with careful planning and communication. Let your employer know about your caregiving responsibilities and see if there are any flexible work arrangements. Make a list of the tasks that need to be done and set priorities. Moreover, we recommend creating a schedule that allows you to balance your work and caregiving responsibilities.

In addition, you should seek help such as respite care and adult day care. Install smart technologies for fall detection, fire safety, use an automated pill dispenser, and use voice first devices with customized reminders for activities of daily living. Lastly, reach out to support groups or counseling services for caregivers to help you cope with the emotional and physical demands of caregiving.
