  • Ask for doctor-prescribed home nurse check-ins.
  • Schedule at-home physical therapy appointments.
  • Make a care schedule and share it with the care team.
  • Get extra help: Hire an at-home caregiver. If you need help with daily tasks such as bathing, dressing, cooking, or cleaning, a caregiver is a huge help.
