29 Ways to Show the Love: Make a Break

menu-1117336_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 Sally, who cared for her parents and two husbands: Arrange for someone to take care of the caree so you can take the family caregiver out for lunch or dinner.

Why this tip is important: Getting out is so hard unless we have help. When you arrange the help and then provide the entertainment, you've hit a home run and scored a touch down at the same time. Giving us time away gives us hope because we know we will be okay.
