Caregivers come in all shapes and sizes and are an extremely important member of any family with a loved one with a medical condition. Caregivers are true to their namesake; they give so much to loved ones. The holidays are a great time to express gratitude to your loved one’s caregiver with a simple gift.
Caregivers spend so much time catering to and thinking of others that they often neglect their own needs. Remind them to take time for themselves with a simple self-care kit. Include tea, chocolate, a blanket or slippers and a CD or DVD you think they would enjoy and would help them unwind.
Another way to help your loved one’s caregiver relax is with an opportunity to pamper themselves. Give them the gift of relaxation with a gift certificate for a manicure or pedicure.
Flowers are a great way to show your loved one’s caregiver that you are thinking about them. Choose a seasonal bouquet or something that you think will brighten their home and include a note to add a more personal touch.
Caregivers are selfless, generous and reliable; be sure to express your gratitude for your loved one’s caregiver during the holiday season.
“For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.”
