In lieu of flowers, join Terri’s Angels and bless a caregiver currently dancing with a loved one through Alzheimer’s or dementia.
Some of the biggest blessings that helped us care for my mama, Teresa Warren-Gardner, were the small, intentional acts of kindness: home-cooked meals & money for take out, items to help with fine motor skills, everyday home essentials, purple clothing (her favorite color!), and monetary donations to help pay for home healthcare services.
Without knowing, these “angel” blessings supported us at some of our most vulnerable moments. We made it because we had help! We made it, because people gifted us emotional, physical and financial support. My mom’s husband and I were a dedicated and committed team with additional support to help respond creatively in our caregiving. Unfortunately, some caregivers are doing this love work solo, with less support and without the means to expose their loved one to a day club or a home health aide.
How Can I Help?
Join Terri’s Angels by making a tax deductible donation. Your gift will go a long way in helping a caregiver who is seeking additional support in caring for their loved one. Too often, people say, “I don’t know what I can do to help,” while caregivers are saying, “I don’t know what we need.” From my experience, financial support (no matter the amount) always helps, because what caregivers are providing/doing daily adds up…from the basic daily living costs to costs directly associated with Alzheimer’s/dementia (ie. Depends, wipes, medicine, Ensure, doctor visits, day club, home health aide, and more).
