29 Ways to Show the Love: Arrange for an At-Home Massage

candle-807247_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.

This tip comes from Lillie (@lillie), who cared for her dad and her grandparents and now cares for her mom: Give the gift of an at-home massage for the family caregiver.

Why this tip is important: A caregiving day is like running a marathon. You have so much to do and a finite amount of time during which to do it. So, you run, sometimes around the house and sometimes in your head to get it done. The caregiving marathon takes a toll on the body, leaving aches, pains and tension. The gift of an at-home massage is a heavenly present. The convenience shaves some miles off that day's caregiving marathon. And, the focus on revitalizing and soothing the muscles feels fantastic. An at-home massage is what every family caregiver deserves.
