Caring for the emotional and physical needs of your loved one as they fight cancer can be fulfilling. But it can also be exhausting. While you are meeting the needs of your loved one, it’s easy to overlook your own well-being.
Caregiving results in emotional and physical stress for the caregiver. You may feel exhausted, isolated or overwhelmed. You may even feel selfish or ashamed for thinking about your own needs. At times, you may be consumed with self-doubt. You are doing your best – but nothing has prepared you for cancer caregiving.
Our Support Volunteers have faced the same challenges – and can provide understanding, support and practical coping suggestions.
