Caregiving

When someone you care about is diagnosed with cancer, there is a natural desire to find a way to help and support that person. For caregivers there are several things to think about, including legal protections and benefits at the federal, state, and even city levels that may be helpful to balance your caregiving responsibilities with your employment and help replace lost income. It is also important to keep in mind that as a caregiver, you need to care for yourself, and there are resources to support you.

Triage Cancer provides educational resources for caregivers to individuals diagnosed with cancer in the form of animated videos, Quick Guides, webinars, and more, to help address common legal and practical issues.

Webinar Description

When someone is diagnosed with cancer it affects the entire family. A common concern is how to support children and teens through a parent or loved one’s diagnosis. Resilience is defined as “an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change”. While some people have a natural ability to “bounce back” from challenging situations, most of us need help in navigating something as serious as a cancer diagnosis. Learn how to engage your natural strengths, pull together specific resources, and build new skills to create a stronger and more resilient family.
