Taking care of someone with throat cancer can mean helping with daily activities, or it can mean providing emotional support. You may be asked to take the person to doctor's appointments, for example. If the person you are caring for cant perform their regular household chores, you may need to take over. Sometimes the most important thing a caregiver can do is be there for the person and listen to them. Remember to take good care of yourself too. Feeling your best will help you to take better care of your loved one.
