WHAT TO EXPECT FROM OUR GROUP

SUPPORT

FACES OF CANCER ST. LUCIA

By definition, a support group is a group of people with common experiences or concerns who provide each other with encouragement, comfort, and advice. This is exactly what Faces of Cancer St. Lucia seeks to provide to all who comes to us. We are a small St. Lucian based group, with approximately 150 members, therefore our resources are limited. We are not a finance support group. But we do try to help in any small way we can financially. We believe that information about the treatment of cancer in St. Lucia is one of our strengths. Some of our members have had their treatments done in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and the Caribbean. all those experiences are shared with those who ask us.

Caregiver is defined here as the person who most often helps the person with cancer and is not paid to do so. In most cases, the main (primary) caregiver is a spouse, partner, parent, or an adult child. When family is not around, close friends, co-workers, or neighbors may fill this role. The caregiver has a key role in the patient’s care. Good, reliable caregiver support is crucial to the physical and emotional well-being of people with cancer.

 

Today, most cancer treatment is given in outpatient treatment centers – not in hospitals. This means someone is needed to be part of the day-to-day care of the person with cancer and that sicker people are being cared for at home. As a result, caregivers have many roles. These roles change as the patient’s needs change during and after cancer treatment.

 

Caregivers serve as home health aides and companions. They may help feed, dress, and bathe the patient. Caregivers arrange schedules, manage insurance issues, and provide transportation. They are legal assistants, financial managers, and housekeepers. They often have to take over the duties of the person with cancer, and still meet the needs of other family members.
