This week on April 6, 2021 it was National Caregivers Day! A big thank you to all the wonderful Caregivers out there providing care and support!

Caregiving is a big job. It often involves taking on many new, important responsibilities. It’s not something you expect or plan ahead for. While you’re caregiving – you may forget to take care of yourself. But it’s very important to make sure that you take time for yourself. Caregivers who take care of their own needs and get the information, help and support they need are better able to take care of others.

Caregiver Discussion Questions:
  • As a caregiver are you able to find time for yourself? Do you have additional help?
  • What activities do you find relaxing?
  • What would you tell someone who is new to caregiving?

Person Diagnosed with Cancer Questions:
  • Did you have help?
  • When did you need the most support?
  • What was the most helpful thing someone did to support you?
