Not long ago I read about good ideas of what to bring over to a family in crises. It included ideas that others don't usually think of. I wasn't able to find past posts. In this case, a new baby came, and mother had a stroke. Both sets of grandparents are available. A support group asks for food, baby needs, home care needs, cash, gift certificates to restaurant, etc.
I'm inclined to give items that would pick up the slack from what others don't think of.
I'd appreciate suggestions for links from past posts, and any new ideas. I expect the needs will go on for a few months. The Dad is a friend of our daughter, and was in my husband's business until a few years ago.
It would be helpful if those who've had experience in dealing with this crises, would offer some suggestions.
