When you're a caregiver of an individual diagnosed with cancer, access to accurate resources about legal and practical matters like taking time off from work, managing family finances and medical bills, replacing lost wages, estate planning, and other matters, can be hard to come by. Triage Cancer is here to bridge the gap with free materials and resources created specifically for caregivers of anyone diagnosed with a serious medical condition, like cancer.
It is important to understand the laws, protections, and resources that may be available to help caregivers. Our free Quick Guides and other materials will explain your potential options for taking time off work, paid leave, stress management, support services, and much more.
These materials present information in a brief, easy-to-digest, printable format to take some of the stress out of this process. If you are looking for a more comprehensive breakdown, see our Practical Guide to Cancer Rights for Caregivers.
