When a Loved One Is Diagnosed With Cancer, Family and Friends May Be Called Upon to Help Take Care of Them

If this is the case, these people have become Caregivers.

There are many different types of Caregivers. Some are family members, while others are friends or support group volunteers.

Some of the responsibilities a Caregiver can expect are:

  • Scheduling and accompanying a loved one to the doctor
  • Assisting with daily needs, such as meals and errands
  • Taking on a loved one's everyday tasks
  • Learning more about cancer and treatment options

If you're a Caregiver, there's a lot of support for you.
