Give the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing.
Adopt A Caregiver! Do you have any idea how much an email will be appreciated. That someone cares about them, is thinking of them. How easy it would be to do nothing. But, think about the caregiver, someone who is there 24/7 doing whatever they have to do, usually alone most of the time. If the patient has been sick a long time, most of their friends have left, their kids are grown with their own families, and no one calls or visits.
What does it take to send an email. Or to make a phone call? Or to send a card? Or flowers? Or give a gift certificate from your social club for a massage, a haircut, or a lunch out with some friends. This is Thanksgiving week. Please think about my Adopt A Caregiver program. Please think about the caregivers in your community. They are there! Stand in their shoes for a moment in time.
Then go out and Adopt A Caregiver. Tell them your friend Helene sent you.
I am leaving in the morning to see my children and grandchildren in California. Hopefully I will be able to write from their house. If not I will be home on Saturday.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. And remember that word of mouth is potent. Please help me plant my Adopt A Caregiver seeds to one and all.
Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
