29 Ways to Show the Love: Add Our Errands to Yours

shopping-1165437_640Each 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 G-J (@g-j), who cares for her husband and cared for her parents: Before running an errand, call and ask if you can pick up (or drop off) anything for us. For instance, before you head to the library, call and ask if we have library books which need to be returned.

Why this tip is so important: Oh, we want to run errands because that can feel like a break. But we have challenges: It's hard for us to get out of house. And, it's really hard for us to find the time to run errands. If we ran errands when we had time and a chance, we'd be out shopping every day at 3 a.m. So, when you add our errands to yours, you really give us time to sleep.
