Caring for someone with terminal cancer brings new challenges and concerns. Jennifer was navigating these caregiving responsibilities when a colleague recommended the Cancer Caregivers Program through CancerAid.
What the program offered Jennifer was the ability to reinforce the important information when caring for someone with a terminal diagnosis.
“The program gave me an outlet to talk to someone during that difficult time and provided clear, accessible information that reinforced what I was being told by the medical team”.
It is never easy to care for someone facing a terminal diagnosis and for Jennifer the program reinforced the important concept of taking care of yourself as a caregiver whilst navigating care for a patient. “The program offered practical strategies on how to communicate more effectively with my loved one”.
