Family & friends

  • Be patient with your loved one and their primary caregiver. They are overwhelmed, busy, and tired!
  • Set up a meal train or offer to clean the house.
  • Recommend good books/audiobooks, movies, music, podcasts, etc. Your loved one is tired and will be spending a lot of time in bed.
