28 Ways to Show the Love: Hold the Massage, Send the Money

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: Send money.

Why this tip is important: I know you may be tempted to buy me a gift certificate for a massage believing that my tense life needs a good loosening up. The best way to ease my muscle strain is by sending money. I can use the money to buy more help or a delivered pizza. When you send money, you send me a choice. Having a choice helps me cope with my stress.

ABSOLUTELY! While I appreciate the gift certificate for the massage, it is lost somewhere on my desk and only reminds me that I can't just go get one...
