A brain cancer diagnosis is life-changing, not only for the person with the tumour but also for the family members and other loved ones. Every caregiving experience is unique, but it can be helpful to talk to others who are living similar experiences.

The role of a caregiver is different for everyone, and will often evolve over time. Your role may include tasks such as setting priorities and solving problems, advocating for the patient, managing medications, and managing day-to-day life.

It can be difficult to put yourself first, especially with everything that may be happening in the life of the patient. It is vital to remember to take care of yourself, which will help you be a better caregiver.
