November is Caregiver Awareness Month! On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, we’d like to thank caregivers for their kindness in caring for their loved ones. Your dedication does not go unnoticed. On this episode, Alicia and Lizette speak with Dr. Marni Amsellem, a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with patients and caregivers who are adjusting to cancer and other health-related challenges, and looking to build their coping skills and resilience. Listen in as Alicia, Lizette and Dr. Amsellem speak about many caregiving topics including long-distance caregiving, emotional concerns, mental health, work-related issues, the importance of delegating tasks and more.
All month long, we’re encouraging patients and families to recognize the special caregivers in their lives. Simply share a photo of you with your caregiver on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #LLScaregiver for a chance to win a caregiver swag bag.
