Supporting Friends and Loved Ones with Cancer, Dec. 2

December 1, 2015

support loved ones cancer

When a loved one has cancer, you not only face an array of intense emotions, but also the responsibilities that come with being a caregiver. Juggling the care of someone with cancer has a great impact on a caregiver physically, psychologically, socially, and financially. Life can quickly become overwhelming, and caregivers typically put others’ needs before their own to meet the demands of each day. Unfortunately, when caregivers are less able to care for themselves, the care they provide to others suffers. Taking the time to meet your own needs is crucial when caring for a loved one with cancer, but where do you start? In this seminar, which will take place on Wednesday, December 2 from 12-1:30 pm in E19-603, Jill McNamara, LICSW, will discuss:

  • Coping with the issues when caring for someone with cancer
  • Setting realistic expectations and ultimately embracing the positive aspects of caregiving
  • Learning how to approach caregiving in a way that allows for self-care and the resources that are available to you
