There is no greater gift than the gift of love. This is especially true when you’re dealing with someone who lives in a residential facility, where loneliness and feelings of abandonment can affect the resident’s wellbeing. Making the effort to provide companionship for someone and sharing conversation, thoughts, and memories can mean so much more than giving the person a piece of jewelry or new clothing.
Unfortunately, for so many of us, time is the one thing we have the least of. It consumes our jobs, our partners, our children, and the obligations of daily life. When we can, we carve out time to visit friends and relatives living in residential care facilities, but it probably doesn’t happen as often as we’d like, and that can make us feel guilty and add to the life stresses we’re already struggling with—but it doesn’t have to.
SitByCare health sitters have specially trained staff that go into facilities and spend time with our family and friends when we aren’t able to do so. These sitters can bring joy and companionship into the lives of the residents. If you have a friend or relative in residential care and live far away or are struggling to find time in your hectic schedule, you can arrange for a health sitter to fill in when you can’t be there.
Do you have a friend who is struggling unsuccessfully with the desire to visit someone in residential care? If so, you can give the gift of love to your friend who can pass it along to the resident. How? SitByCare has a gift card program that enables you to cover the cost of a visit by a health sitter. The gift cards are available in a wide range of denominations that can fit into any budget.
You can give this gift of love to your friends who can share it with their loved ones by enabling them to provide the companionship of a sitter to the people they care about, making a big difference in two lives! Giving a gift of love that can be passed along to a third party—perhaps someone you don’t even know personally—can spread the love to where it is so keenly needed and so deeply appreciated.
