Help for the Helpers
With 65 million Americans caring for chronically ill, disabled or aged family members or friends each year, resources to help the helpers are essential. Now, there is a new online resource for those caring for a loved one with cancer, and it’s free of charge.
Help for Cancer Caregivers is an interactive, personalized web tool to help combat the stress of being a cancer caregiver, so they can be well equipped to care for their loved ones.
This free resource is the result of a collaboration between CancerCare, Michigan State University, Indiana University, Caregiver Action Network, and Wellpoint.
Check it out today by visiting http://helpforcancercaregivers.org.
