Practical Steps You Can Take To Help

Let’s face it. You can’t do everything. There are, however, practical ways you can help your loved one throughout treatment, including: 

Assisting With Your Loved One’s Treatment

  • Attend all appointments, especially the first few
  • Tap into available resources
  • Learn how to provide physical care
  • Meet with TCI’s Care Navigators to learn about the resources available to you and your loved one
  • Focus on the small things you can do so you don’t get overwhelmed

Provide Emotional Support

  • Listen
  • Discover what works
  • Support your loved one’s decisions
  • Be an advocate
  • Encourage your loved one to join a support group, and/or join one yourself
  • Offer support after treatment is over
