Supporting your loved one

As a Care Partner, you help advocate for your loved one; you work with the healthcare team to decide on a treatment plan and help your loved one through the treatment process. Here are some suggestions you may find beneficial:

Before Appointments

Preparing for treatment can be stressful, but you can help by knowing your loved one’s medical history before going to appointments.

During Appointments

You can help at appointments by coming prepared with questions, taking notes during the conversation, and keeping track of upcoming appointments.

After Appointments

After appointments with the healthcare team, it’s important to monitor your loved one for any side effects they may have.
