It's easy to pour all your support into the person who is sick and overlook the care that the caregiver needs too. After all, only one person is undergoing treatment and side effects. But the caregiver's journey is exhausting, and they can use some care and support too. Whether the person who is ill is in the hospital or at home, these are a few ideas to offer your support:
- Give the gift of food or gift cards for ready-made meals or delivery options
- Offer time to sit with the patient so the caregiver can go and get some uninterrupted rest
- Send a message or call to offer emotional support
