What does palliative care during my cancer treatment do for my family caregivers?

Palliative care isn’t just for cancer patients. The palliative care team can support your family and caregivers as well as you during your cancer treatment. Our expert team can provide your family and caregivers:

  • A communication bridge to facilitate communication between you, your family and your treatment team;
  • Relief for the stress, worry and sadness they may be experiencing about your illness;
  • Spiritual and emotional support as they accompany you on your journey;
  • Help with your insurance, Social Security and other paperwork.

You can ask your doctor or nurse about seeking palliative care support for your family caregivers. Learn more about the palliative care options in this video:
