Athens-Limestone Tourism salutes and says Thank You to the hospice and long-term caregivers who help our neighbors throughout Athens-Limestone all year long.
Say Thank You This National Caregivers Day
February 19, 2021
February 19th is National Caregivers Day celebrating the contributions of long-term caregivers who provide care and assistance to our friends and loved-ones with round-the-clock care or expert care to enable them to continue healing, assist the family in caring for them, providing them with a dignified quality of life, or enable them to return to the comfort of their homes in hospice care.
This is great day to recognize the efforts of the individuals who step into the gaps to help. Here are a few...
...ideas to say “Thank You” to those caregivers who have made a difference in the lives of your family and friends.
1 – Say “Thank You”
Two powerful words can brighten the day of caregiver in your life and make them feel appreciated. Whether it’s spoken or inside a store bought card – Thank You has the power to heal the healers.
2 – Share Praise with their Supervisors
Take a little time to phone your caregivers supervisor and let them hear about how much the caregiver has done for you and your loved one or friend. It’s easy to get wound up in your day and forget to sing the praises of someone who is making life easier for you and better for those you care about. Take time to validate and appreciate their efforts – everyone will be smiles.
3 – Food Feeds The Heart
Treat the caregiver in your life to a meal or give them a gift card from an Athens-Limestone restaurant – there’s plenty to chose from at VisitAthensAL.com/covid-19-restaurant-list. You’ll find dine-in; drive-thru; call in-to go; carryout options to make grabbing a meal to surprise them easy. Several restaurants offer curbside family-sized specials or take-and-bake options that would be a great gift for the oh-so-busy caregivers not to have to worry about “What’s for dinner tonight?”.
