28 Ways to Show the Love: Ask Me How I Am

Denise
Each day in February, we’ll share a way that family members and friends can help the family caregiver in their lives. (A family caregiver is an individual who cares for a family member or friend, just like you.) Through our campaign, we hope to create awareness of what family caregivers do and how others can help.

Today’s tip comes from me; I help my parents and an aunt: Ask me how I am.

Why this tip is important: I so appreciate you checking in about how my carees are. I am grateful when you ask how I'm doing. While I may not answer truthfully (it may be too much to tell), I feel treasured when you ask how I'm holding up. Just asking me helps me hold up.

(Have an idea you’d like us to include? Email your idea to Denise and include an explanation of why your tip is so important.)
