The responsibilities of supporting someone through cancer can feel both rewarding and worrying at the same time.
There may be lots to sort out practically, and often your own feelings, emotions and welfare can become side-lined. This is where Carers in Bedfordshire can help. You may benefit from a range of our one to one support, support groups or wellbeing service.
If the person you are caring for is struggling to cope by themselves, you can arrange a Needs Assessment from their local council. You can have a Carers Assessment at the same time.
For further information about these assessments, visit our Getting a Carers and Needs Assessment information page.
You can find ideas on looking after yourself by visiting Macmillan Cancer Support, a national charity supporting people affected by cancer.
