You're a caregiver if you're helping a friend or loved one through their cancer diagnosis and cancer treatment. Your responsibilities may include going with the patient to medical appointments, helping them around the house (cooking, cleaning, errands, etc.), taking care of their finances and just simply being there for them.
At CoxHealth we understand that as a caregiver, you're an important member of the care team. That's why we provide support and resources to those who are committed to helping our patients through their journey with cancer.
The Allenbrand Resource Center inside Hulston Cancer Center in Springfield, and the Cantwell Resource Center in Branson, have several helpful books available for free checkout. Our Caregivers Support Group, tailored specifically for caregivers of cancer patients, meets monthly on the first Thursday at 4:30 p.m., in the Patient Classroom, Ste. 200 in Hulston Cancer Center in Springfield. In addition to our monthly support group, caregiver education programs on a variety of helpful topics are held twice each year.
