Other things friends and family can offer to do:

  • Review medical bills


         Insurance plan

  • Shop for home care  agencies or nursing / rehab facilities 
  • Write thank you cards
  • Organize spring clean up around the home
  • Start a fundraiser if money is needed
  • Organize food delivery or cook / shop
  • Do laundry - Lifting may be difficult
  • Care for pets
  • Drive children to school or babysit

Be sure to not overstep your bounds.  If someone is ill and doesn't want your help, be respectful and don't push. Keep the dialogue open.  They may want it tomorrow.
