All Caregivers are different. Whatever role you play in giving care to the prostate cancer patient, let it be your own. Remember, the journey belongs to the patient. Make sure you are listening to their desires and priorities. Some decisions are easy, and some are tough. But remembering that ultimately they all belong to the cancer patient can be really freeing at times. Still, they always need support – for researching issues, working through the medical system, clarifying medication issues, and for any lifestyle changes that happen, either because of choice, or because of circumstances.
Try to remember that the goal is not perfection. The goal is to simply do your best….if you are reading this, you probably already are.
