28 Ways to Show the Love: Think for Me

0
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: Think for me (even just once) and bring me what I may need without having to ask for it.

Why this tip is important: I do the thinking for many people which means sometimes I'm exhausted from thinking. And, it can mean I think of myself last. If you could think for me (and of me), I would be forever grateful! Call me before an important appointment to check on us. Call me after an important appointment to see how we are. Bring me groceries when I'm sick and offer to have me for dinner just because. I feel so loved when you think for me and of me.

(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.
