29 Ways to Show the Love: Send a Gift Card

Denise
gift-1196288_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 Deborah (@deborah) who cares for her parents and cared for her mother-in-law: Send the family caregiver a gift card to Target or a grocery store or gas station.

Why this tip is important: It's expensive to care for a family member. Family caregivers pinch pennies so tight the pennies can barely breathe. "Lots of money is spent on miscellaneous expenses by caregivers and this would really help offset the cost," Deborah explains. You give us a gift card but really you've created a sigh of relief.
