I thought it would be helpful if we shared our tips/tricks for staying sane in home care with others. For example, How do you keep your paperwork organized? How do you keep your lunch cold?, How do you prepare for the weather? How do you organize your supplies, etc. Any tips for dealing with non-compliant patients? I'll start..
1. If you are taking supplies from the office use the "Noahs Ark" technique and always take two. That way if there are problems with the first one your covered. (I know this may not be allowed anymore).
2. My agency is on computers and I keep a word document with phrases/skills that I can copy and paste into documents. Saves time!
3. I bought a car desk online and this helps keeping the paperwork organized and not having items falling all over the car.
