A few general tips on how to keep connected and create memories that will last a lifetime.
- Be intentional. Decide how often you would want to interact with your family members and make your wishes known.
- Be understanding. Take the time to listen to your family's questions and needs. This will help you stay connected.
- Be available. Find things in common with your children or grandchildren and make yourself available. Maybe it's time to coach a little league, go on facebook, watch monday night football together, volunteer at the school, or do a monthly movie night.
Caregiving or family loss often requires support from individuals that understand what you are going through. Support groups and friends are available across many communities. Contact Family Caregivers BC or BC Support Groups for more information.
