Carer Support

Unpaid family carers can play a vital role in the lives of those with advanced melanoma.

Your carer may be a family member – such as your spouse, partner, child, parent, grandparent or sibling – or you may have a friend who has stepped into this role.

It is important that carers look after their own health and well-being and receive emotional support around the issues facing their loved ones.

There are support services to assist your carer in their caring role, including:-

This MPA article, Care for the Carer, explores the vital role of the carer plus provides some tips to help you along the way.
