As medicine advances cancer related hospital stays are short-term and caregiving from home is becoming more long-term. Caregivers are an important support system to cancer patients, and are important through each step whether it be at diagnosis, during treatment at the hospital, during care at home, when treatment ends, during recovery and other circumstances. This page is dedicated to aiding caretakers by providing similar stories, and ways to be helpful to cancer patients. The following content is provided by various health organizations, along with Dr. Northfelt a Hematologist/ Oncologist, Professor of Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Arizona.
