Caring for the Caregiver

I understand first hand that loved ones with cancer become reliant on their caregivers for support of their most basic needs. As a caregiver, you provide a lot of little things that can add up to a lot less stress.

From transportation and cooking to emotional support and reassurance. As you worry about your loved one and watch them experience illness, it can be exhausting.

You are probably so focused on your loved one that you don’t even realize that you are exhausted until you take a moment to relax. It’s easy to minimize the impact cancer is having on your life and shift focus to your loved one.

My vision for you, the caregiver, includes feeling:

  • Well rested
  • Emotionally understood
  • Refreshed and ready for the times when your loved one needs you the most

I know that during my caregiver experience when my husband was going through cancer treatment, I was tired, but too worried about him to rest. I was more focused on his eating habits than my own. I did everything I could to get him in to see doctors and healers, but neglected to make my own appointments.   

I have been there, and I want better than that for you. I can support you in regaining your health and vitality, provide a safe place for emotional support, and bring some focus back to you and your health. 

When you feel 100%, you can give 100%.  Remember, your health helps shape the health of your loved ones.

What is a Co-Survivor?

For each of us, the definition is a little different, but generally a co-survivor is a person that provides help and support to someone diagnosed with cancer. This can be a spouse, life partner, child, or friend.

Being a co-survivor recognizes that you have undergone your own unique journey with cancer and a loved one being diagnosed with cancer.

As a co-survivor, cancer has played a major role in your life, too. You have probably experienced changes in your relationships, your schedule, and your health. Being a co-survivor can even create its own health risks.

As a co-survivor, you often sacrifice your own health in order to support your loved one. Studies are enlightening us on the unique health impacts of co-survivorship and stress.

As a co-survivor you might have experienced:

  • Burnout
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Weight gain
  • Insomnia
  • Frequent colds/flu
  • Grief

As your loved one gets healthy again, it allows time for your own process of healing after a cancer diagnosis. I can help you refocus on your own health journey and address any areas of your health that might need a tune up.

If your loved one is still going through their cancer journey, I am here to support your emotional and physical health. I can provide simple tips and supplements to take care of yourself while your loved one is being treated for cancer. We will work together to prevent adrenal fatigue and exhaustion. After all, if you are not healthy, who is going to be there for your loved one?

When you feel 100%, you can give 100%.  Remember, your health helps shape the health of your loved ones.
