This year has thrown us all for a loop. The good news is the holidays are a time for joy and family. While that means more to prepare for, we are here to help! Our network of special needs caregivers and nannies are ready to jump in. Whether you need respite care, a companion during the holiday season, or someone to jump in and add some festive fun to your loved ones day. Check out all the ways our caregivers can support you.

1. More Time for Holiday Shopping

Schedule a Care Date ahead of time and get your holiday shopping done! You’ll feel great knowing you have designated time to run errands.

2. Lending a Hand During the Holiday Break

When your kids are off from school, our network of experienced caregivers are here to help with meal prepping, schedule management, and tutoring.

3. Driving arrangements to Special Visits

Do you have a loved one with a disability that needs help getting around? Our caregivers can help with pick-ups and drop-offs to special events with family and friends.

4. Running Errands

We all know our to-do lists can get a little lengthy this time of year. Caregivers can help run errands, pick up medications, and grocery shop.

5. Festive Activities with Your Loved One

There are many covid-safe events that make for a fun Care Date! Schedule a caregiver to get you or your loved one out of the house to look at the holiday lights, grab some hot cocoa, or even build a snowman! 

6. Holiday Crafts to Spark Creativity

While you take some time to yourself, our caregivers will keep your loved one engaged with fun crafts!

7. Virtual Check-ins

Another great way caregivers can alleviate the stress this season is through virtual Care Dates. We can be there for your loved one virtually to play games, watch festive movies or just check in to chat for an hour!

8. Give Yourself the Night Off

Have a holiday party or events to attend? As the holiday season quickly approaches, it’s a great idea to schedule Care Dates in advance.

9. Companionship

The holidays can bring a mix of emotions and memories. Especially during Covid, it’s easy to feel lonely this time of year. As you and your family are extra busy with shopping and other outings, our screened caregivers can provide companionship and festive holiday experiences for your loved one with special needs.
