Be the Patient Expert. The family caregiver should be the best, most complete, and accurate source of information about the person receiving care.

Coordinate Care. Acquire a basic understanding of how our complex health care system works and learn to navigate its many aspects.

Be the Patient Advocate. Do all the things required to ensure that the care recipient gets the best possible care and the most favorable health outcomes.
