Description

Caring for a cancer sufferer or survivor is not a time-limited commitment, for which patience, understanding, empathy and warmth are indispensable qualities that can enhance the sufferer or survivor’s quality of life. This booklet offers useful advice, information and encouragement to those shouldering the role of carer, including related websites for working carers and – thanks to Age UK’s research and information services – advice on claiming Carer’s Allowances and Attendance Allowance. Details are also given for patients on obtaining Eli Lilly’s DVD ‘What can I eat now’, and on purchasing a subsidised bed wedge for elevating head and torso in bed.
