29 Ways to Show the Love: Make a Photo Collage for the Caree

photo-256889_640(1)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 Sher (@sher), who cares for her father: Create a collage of photos for the caree to enjoy. The photos could be from the caree's younger years as well as from recent holidays, like Christmas.

Why this is important: We know the importance of reminiscing for our caree, who participate in a life review process as their lives slow. We'd love to be able to re-create memories, whether in a photo album or DVD or poster board of photos, for our carees to enjoy. We just often can't come up with the time and energy. When you do this for us, you create an easy way for our carees to connect with important and life-affirming memories. And, you create treasured memories for us of our caree loving what you made.
