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.
