Take Caregiving.com's StayCation Challenge

beach-84533_640It’s one more thing to give up because of caregiving: A vacation.

Just because you stay home, though, doesn’t mean you can’t still have some fun. And, just think, the fun comes without having to pack, unpack, organize, schedule, fret, worry, cajole and leave.

And, to encourage you to have some fun, we’re sponsoring a StayCation Challenge.

From now until July 12, take a staycation, even if it only lasts for five minutes. Think you can’t? We’ve got some ideas to help you know you can:

  • buy a lounge chair and sit in your backyard in your bathing suit (or perhaps just buy a lounge chair and sit in your backyard);

  • stay in a local hotel for one night;

  • make Coppertone SPF 15 your favorite new perfume;

  • soak your feet in the inflatable kiddy pool you resurrect in your backyard;

  • visit a tourist attraction in your home town;

  • have a barbeque;

  • light up the Smokey Joe and make S’mores;

  • pitch a tent in the backyard, decorate the inside with your favorite photos and knick knacks, and then hide there whenever you want;

  • have a Happy Hour in your backyard with a special summer-time cocktail and fancy snacks;

  • add sparkling lights to your backyard, transforming it into a magical space;

  • join the neighborhood kids in a game of Ghosts in the Graveyard;

  • order in dinner and then go out for ice cream.


Do something you would normally do on vacation. Just do it when you’re at home or close to home.

Then, take a picture or video that represents your StayCation, join our StayCation Challenge group and post your photo (or photos–I love photos) or video by Monday, July 14.

  • Prize No. 1: Three coaching sessions with me (a $255 value) so we can create a plan so you take a break; an "I Care t-shirt; an autographed copy of my newest book, Take More Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Family Caregivers.



  • Prize No. 2: A $25 Amazon.com gift card and an autographed copy of my newest book, Take More Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Family Caregivers.



  • Prize No. 3: An autographed copy of my newest book, Take More Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Family Caregivers.


Have fun on your StayCation!
