Caring for the Caregiver: Finding the Right Recipe
Here at Lotsa Helping Hands, we often hear from our very own members. This guest blog post comes from Karen, who writes about finding the right recipe to meet a family’s needs.
I recently received an email from a parent of another child in my daughter’s third grade class. Another mom—someone new to town, who I don’t yet know well—was scheduled for reconstructive surgery following a mastectomy. She’d be in the hospital for five days, followed by least another five days of strict bed rest, and probably many more days where she wouldn’t have the energy to cook for her family. One way our community was coming to her family’s aid was by organizing meal deliveries. Of course I wanted to help out.
