Introduction to Cancer Caregiving
Beginning to help a loved one through cancer treatment can be stressful. This introductory online class gives new caregivers the skills and resources to help:
- Understand cancer and its treatments
- Cope with stress
- Deal with changing family roles
- Meet the physical and emotional needs of the patient
- Improve their own mental and physical health
- Seek out and take advantage of community resources
This class is for people who are new to caregiving and are looking for education and resources. It is a one-time session, not a support group. Participants must also be residents of the state of California.
