Caregivers are some of the busiest people in the world. Stress levels are high and finances are limited. Here is a thought for the upcoming Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, works well for May Day or any holiday really.
Give the caregiver a day long break. This can be in the form of a coupon, with not only the date for use but also some suggestions for the use. A day at the spa or a day at the beach can be just what the doctor ordered for everyone in the picture. Find someone to give the caregiver the respite time and make sure the coupon explains all the appropriate financial information regarding how and how much is paid on this respite.
Should there be a blank in the thought process as to which or what to give as a respite. Try asking these agencies for help; www.AAA.com , www.chamberofcommerce.com , the local travel agent, or clear all thoughts and let the past be the guide. What was the most talked about memory or experience? It will all become clear and the caregiver will be very appreciative.
