Five Ways to Thank Someone During National Caregivers Month This November

November is National Family Caregivers month across the United States. It’s a time to celebrate the volunteers, friends and family members who support a love one with their health or a disability.

More than 44 million Americans care for a family member, friend or neighbor. November is a great time to pause and celebrate their countless contributions. Here are five ideas for National Caregiver’s Month.

National Caregiver’s Month Ideas

1. Start with a card. An old fashioned hand written and sincere note can go a long way. Take the time to write a heartfelt thank you card or letter.

 

2. Make them a meal or a treat. Consider making dinner for a neighbor or family member who is caring for a loved one. Or maybe even bring them a treat or simple bunt cake from the bakery. Accompany it with a warm and heartfelt thanks.

 

3. Say it with flowers. If you are far away, consider sending flowers. For a neighbor, it can be as simple as cutting stems from your yard and wrapping ribbon around a jar.

 

4. Take time for tea. Caring for a loved one isn’t easy. Text ahead and stop in for a cup of tea or coffee. Maybe bring the coffee with you to make it fun.

 

5. Give them a break. Plan ahead via email or phone and schedule a time to give a caregiver a break.
