A Time to Honor Family Caregivers

November is National Family Caregivers Month — a time to recognize and honor family caregivers.

Did You Know:

As a family caregiver for a loved one diagnosed with cancer the responsibility can feel lonely and overwhelming. Fortunately for Coloradoans, Rocky Mountain Centers (RMCC), the state’s largest community-based oncology care provider, offers patients and their families an expansive scope of services to help manage the wide ranging impact of cancer.

As a family caregiver for a loved one diagnosed with cancer the responsibility can feel overwhelming. Family caregivers who reside with those they provide care for often spend more than 40 hours a week performing caregiver tasks.

Our Supportive Care Program has licensed oncology social workers who work directly with patients and their loved ones as part of the interdisciplinary team. They are available to help patients and their loved ones cope with the impact and changes that result from a diagnosis of cancer. Services are provided in person, over the phone, or in a group setting, and do not require a referral from a physician or medical team.

Through Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers’ exclusive collaboration with the global nonprofit, the Cancer Support Community (CSC), our patients and their families have access to CSC’s national programs including a toll-free Cancer Support Helpline®, Frankly Speaking About Cancer® educational podcasts, workshops and reference materials, and MyLifeLine, an online community for patients and caregivers. These services are available across RMCC’s 13 primary clinic locations with CSC satellite hubs being established at RMCC’s clinics in Lone Tree and in Colorado Springs.

The organization includes an international network of affiliates that offer the highest quality social and emotional support for people impacted by cancer. The Research and Training Institute conducts cutting-edge psychosocial, behavioral, and survivorship research. CSC furthers its focus on patient advocacy through its Cancer Policy Institute, informing public policy in Washington, D.C. and across the nation.

Life after a cancer diagnosis isn’t easy.
