Caregivers share eight ways that you can reach out to someone in your life right now who is providing care for a relative or spouse. It can be hard to know what to say and how to help. Everyone feels unsure of how best to support those in a caregiving role.
These ideas range from offering to pick up groceries while you're doing your own errands to sending a text to let them know you're thinking of them. The important thing is to offer specific ways in which you can help instead of always asking an open ended question which requires the caregiver to come up with something you can help with.
