Caregiver Support Services

A caregiver may be a family member or close friend of a person with cancer. You are there to support your loved one in daily tasks and with positive encouragement. You need support too.

How to Help Yourself

  1. Make your own wellness a priority—you need to take care of your own health to be there for your loved one. Remember to eat well, see your doctor, get rest, exercise, relax, and take a break to do things you enjoy.
  2. Stay organized—Make a schedule to balance your other responsibilities with the care you are providing. Include time to do things you enjoy.
  3. Create a support team—Make a list of people who offer to help with contact information and the tasks they are comfortable doing (and your loved one is comfortable having them do).
  4. Set boundaries—There is a limit to what you can do. Recognize when you need to ask for help.
  5. Seek help—Community volunteers and support services for respite care, home care, and hospice can provide needed help.
