Welcome to Cancer Caring Coping, within these pages you will see and hear the stories and experiences of real cancer caregivers who want to give support, advice and tips for coping in the caring role. Importantly, if you are a cancer caregiver, you will find guidance on how to look after yourself as well as your loved one.
For some carers bereavement is a reality. Carers who have experienced the death of their loved one share painful and emotional stories of loss and how they cope in the days, weeks, months and years afterwards.
Caring for someone with cancer can have financial implications. And if you are employed the experience can also impact on your job and income. There is advice and support available and you may be entitled to benefits.
