28 Ways to Show the Love: Keep Inviting Me

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: Keep inviting me.

Why this tip is important: I would love to join you when you invite me to dinner or coffee or a party. Unfortunately, despite my wish to attend, my reality means I often can't. When you continue to invite me, you give me hope -- hope that when I do have time to enjoy being with you, you will still be a part of my life. I am grateful you give me that hope.

(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.)
