Tell Us: What's One of Your Little Things?

Denise
daisy-348548_640On Tuesday during Care Break on Your Caregiving Journey, Bruce (@brucemc), Jane (@jbones1961) and I discussed the 101 little things we do as we care for family members and friends that make a big difference.

Bruce shared how he spots ramps for his wife and helps her with her coat. Jane brushes her daughter's hair after her shower. I provide IT support to my parents and offer context when the words of health care professionals fall flat. A member of Bruce's support group shared that he makes sure his wife wears her earrings every day.

During Tuesday's show, Bruce couldn't remember two little things he meant to mention during the show. His wife, Kathy, remembered, though, and texted him just before our show ended.

Through these little things, we bring normalcy to our caree's day and ensure they participate in life as much as possible. And, some day, these little things will mean the most to us. When we remember the little things, we'll remember we did our best to do enough.

So, tell us: What's one of the 101 little things you do to help your caree? Share yours in our comments section, below.
