Overview

We’ve heard from many caregivers about things they wish they had known early on. There are tips in this booklet. Some of the tips seem simple, but they may not always be easy to do. Use this booklet in whatever way works best for you. You can read it from front to back. Or you can just refer to different sections as you need them. No two people are alike. Some chapters of this booklet may apply to you, while others may not. Or you may find that some sections are more useful to you later.

This booklet is for you if your loved one has been told that he or she has advanced cancer that is no longer responding to treatment. It explores many of the questions and crossroads you may be facing now. Until now, you have probably gone through cancer treatment with your loved one hoping for a remission or recovery. If your health care team is telling you that this may not be possible, you may be facing new choices to make about care and future steps. Making these transitions in care can be hard. You’ll need to focus on the things you can control and what you can do to make this time with your loved one special. You’ll want to help the patient live life to the fullest. Many caregivers say that this time gave their life special meaning and a sense of what’s important.
