Gifts for the Caregivers
Caregivers are constantly busy. They work with elders. They manage and maintain the security and safety of your elderly parents. And, they have their own lives. A little bit of help…that probably describes an appropriate gift for a caregiver.
The best gifts you can give someone caring for your elderly parents are those that relieve stress, bring a moment of calm, or provide a bit of respite for the caregiver. Caregivers value the gifting of time.
Isn’t it nice to have someone else do the cooking on occasion? Give a gift certificate for a restaurant. Also laundry/dry cleaning services, especially those that deliver. Lawn care services; computer/technology support; housekeeping services; or personal pampering services, such as massages, facials and manicures/pedicures.
Caring for the elderly is a job that never ends. Aging never stops. Couple that fact with medications and medical conditions (disease, etc.) and the result is continual deterioration. There is no real break from elderly aging, nor from caregiving. So a cost-effective and truly meaningful gift might include helping the caregiver. Create coupons for cleaning the house, preparing a meal, mowing the lawn or shoveling the driveway. Providing respite time that allows the caregiver time off to focus on what they need. Gift certificates are wonderful!
