Caregivers can be hired through an agency or privately. Some advantages to an agency are that caregivers are pre-trained and screened, their benefits are paid for, and there is back-up in case they don’t show up. They have a supervisor who should be monitoring the care they provide. One disadvantage is the caregiver receives only a portion of the money that you pay. A second is loyalty may be more to the agency than to you.

Plan ahead: Don’t let your mind remain idle. Develop interests that don’t involve alcohol like a new hobby or sports. Avoid people, places, and occasions that will obviously serve alcohol and may trigger your drinking. Learn to say “no, thanks” when you’re offered an alcoholic drink.

Boiling is the oldest and most basic way to purify water. A rolling boil will destroy any pathogens. You can kill microorganisms at sustained heat that is less than a boil, but it’s difficult to measure in the field. Make sure the water is actually boiling. A rolling boil is big bubbles that shake the pan, not a few tiny bubbles on the bottom of the pan. To be safe, bring the water to a rolling boil for 3 to 5 minutes. As a general rule, add one minute of boiling time for each 1,000 feet of elevation above sea level. If you’re using the water for cooking, there’s no extra time, fuel weight, or cost involved. But boiling water for drinking is slow and tedious, and adds to the weight of the fuel in your pack. The real weight of boiling water is the weight of the extra fuel you need to carry.
