Coordinating Your Homecare Team

When meeting or talking with the homecare team members, some specific things you should discuss include:

  • Any issues or concerns regarding the injury and current physical, cognitive, and/or emotional needs of the service member or veteran
  • Current needs of immediate family members
  • Contact information for each team member
  • Identifying members’ availability and tasks they are willing to do
  • Identifying a team leader to contact team members during emergencies or to reorganize schedules

Use a master calendar to track team members’ schedules. Having and maintaining a schedule of routine tasks can save time and energy for all the care team members.

Each team member should have:

  • Emergency contact numbers for key family members and emergency personnel
  • Important medical information such as medications and allergies

Identify someone who will have an extra set of house keys and a spare set of vehicle keys, if necessary.
