Three new CancerCare fact sheets offer tips to help people cope with the challenges of caring for a loved one with cancer.
- “Coping with the Stress of Caregiving” provides strategies to help caregivers manage their emotional and physical health in order to provide the best care for their loved one.
- “Managing the Practical Concerns of Your Loved One’s Diagnosis” addresses topics such as organizing bills and paperwork and applying for financial help.
- “Caregiving During Holidays and Special Occasions” provides tips to help caregivers and their loved ones find ways to get the most out of special events.
All three fact sheets can be ordered free of charge from our online order form, or by calling 800-813-HOPE (4673).
CancerCare offers many free services for caregivers, including counseling from professional oncology social workers and support groups that are available online, over the phone, and face to face.
CancerCare will also hold a free workshop for caregivers at our national office in New York City on June 25 at 5:30pm. The workshop, “Caring for the Caregiver,” will provide practical tips and information on topics such as improving communication with a loved one and caring for yourself as you care for a loved one.
The registration deadline for this workshop is June 18. Please contact Chrissy Rubin, LMSW at 212-712-6139 or email email@example.com to register.
