Our Recent Caregiver Gifts:
For Sheila from Hugh
Julie, nominated her mother, Sheila, who works full time, while still caring for her husband Hugh. Hugh surprised his daughter and wife to a day of spa treatments and lunch.
After enjoying her spa and lunch day with her daughter, Sheila said: “I truly did not know how much I needed this time away to relax and feel okay about not being right by my husband’s side every minute possible. This day helped me realize if I don’t take care of me, I can’t take care of him.”
Her husband Hugh responded: “Just by seeing how much this gift has meant to her has brought pure joy to my spirit. . . seeing her expression when she learned of this exceeds anything I can express with words.”
For Latoya from Gloria
Gloria Queen is an advanced breast cancer patient at Medstar Union Memorial Hospital; her daughter Latoya Wilson lives with her and takes care of her while going to college and working a fulltime job. CaringOn and Gloria surprised Latoya with a gift of dinner for two and an overnight stay at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel on Labor Day weekend 2015.
From Latoya: Being a caregiver has its challenging moments but I wouldn’t stop doing what I do for anything or anyone. My mom . . . was always there for me growing up. A single mom who did her very best to provide for me. The CaringOn gift truly made happy and honestly I felt appreciated.
From Gloria: The feeling of joy and love filled me as my beloved daughter got to have a nice night to herself. As for the blessings and goodness and the love that was given to us both…. God Bless Caring on…
