Caregivers’ Burnout: The Emotional Side of Caregiving
Caring for a loved one with blood cancer is not always easy, and it can affect you mentally, physically and emotionally. You play an important role in caring for the life of a loved one touched by a blood cancer, but what do you do to stay healthy and to take care of yourself? Join Kit McCann, nurse practitioner at Windsor Regional Hospital (Ontario), to discuss the reality of caregiver burnout and ways to prevent it from happening. She will also help identify some of the common, often hard to admit, feelings that caregivers experience.
