29 Ways to Show the Love: Bring the Beauty Shop Home

haircare-350076_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 Lillie (@lillie), who cares for her mom, and Bonnie (@bonnie), who cared for her mom: Arrange for an at-home haircut.

Why this tip is so important: "When caring for my mother in her eighties," Bonnie explains, "she could not stand or walk and had to be moved in her wheel chair. Even though she had other health issues such as COPD, she still wanted to have her hair done weekly. I would take her as often as possible but on times when she could not leave the house, the beautician would come to my home and do her hair without charge. This was a gift to me to see Mother happier!"
