I’ve been working hard lately to clear out my email inbox. Although I’ve already answered many of these messages from readers directly, I’ll be publishing those of general interest in this Monday Mailbag column. Recently, I received a request for a free printable home health care chart, which is what I’m sharing today.
I spotted your free medication tracking chart online and love it. It helps a lot. I was wondering, though, if you happen to have a broader home health chart? I need one that could help me keep track other caregiving tasks, as well, such as showering, changing bandages, washing bed linens, etc. I’ve been looking around the Internet and haven’t been able to find one I like.
I don’t presently offer such a form on this site, but maybe I should. Especially considering how many friends I know have begun caring for elderly parents during our present COVID crises.
Here’s what I’ve come up with. Hope this free printable home health care chart will suffice!
As you can see, it has space for tracking hygiene habits, nutrition, social activities, outings, etc. I also included a couple of blank lines for you to use for specific tasks I forgot. And I included a time sheet at the bottom, in case you end up delegating caregiving to others or hiring a home health nurse to help with the patient.
