    Perhaps at the retreat you could pass out Care Bags to the care givers. Inside would be such items as several travel packs of tissue, a package of aspirin, hand lotion, a couple of pens, scratch pads, a CD of restful music, a pocket comb, an emery board, tic-tacs (or something similar), gift cards to local fast food restaurants and gas stations.

    I really like Mary Maxwell. She adds humor to the serious situations. Also, each year in February, we have a day for caregivers - a kind of retreat. We are always looking for new ideas and informatioin as handouts, as well as processes we could do with the caregivers during the retreat. Basically, we want to do all we can to be good and gentle with them "spoil them" as they do so much for their loved ones.
