You’re Caring for Carers
Being a carer for a loved one who has a blood cancer can be rewarding, stressful, overwhelming and isolating.
Across Australia, more than two million people regularly care for a spouse, partner, brother, sister, parent, friend or child. Their care and support vary, from a couple of hours a day or week, to around the clock.
With the help of our kind supporters, the Leukaemia Foundation has developed an e-learning course, Caring for the Carer to meet the needs of those in this important role. Blood Cancer Support Coordinators have designed and this program especially for carers of people living with a blood cancer.
Not only will completing this online course help carers to recognise and support their emotional and practical needs, it also provides access to all the services, support and guidance that is available to them.
