How to Be a Supportive Caregiver

Caregivers provide support to someone who needs help. It does not matter how many hours per week are spent providing support. Caring for a family member or friend is not easy, nor is it something most of us are prepared to do. Learning about being a caregiver may help you provide the care your friend or loved one needs.

  • Help the person to accept that he/she has an advanced or life-threatening illness 
  • Create a climate that encourages and supports sharing feelings 
  • Understand that men and women communicate in different ways, and make allowances for those differences 
  • Help the patient deal with anxiety and depression 
  • Let the patient make as many of his/her decisions as possible 
  • Support the patient’s spiritual concerns 
  • Help to resolve the patient’s unfinished business
