THE LIST of 7 Easy Ways to Help a Military Caregiver:
- Offer to watch and play with the kids, so the caregiver can have some respite.
- Cook 1 or 2 of their favorite meals. Store one in the freezer for when the caregiver/chef/parent/everything needs another night off.
- Help fix a few things around the house. Everyone feels better when the house is in order.
- Help them get their much needed “couple-time”. Provide the babysitters, the gift cards, the driver, etc.
- Help the caregiver get appointments for “me-time”. Hair care, mani/pedi – time with friends.
- Bring flowers. Just the easiest thing you can do to brighten a caregivers day.
- Ask what they need. If they say, “Nothing”, do persist gently and help them figure out 5 little things you can take of their list. Just reach out and ask.
