How can I make frequent trips to the hospital for oncology appointments and/or cancer treatment easier for myself and my loved one with dementia and cancer? Family members and carers play a vital supportive role for people with dementia, particularly in helping them to engage with and navigate healthcare systems and care, which are important when also diagnosed with and receiving treatment/care for cancer. Hospital visits can be particularly challenging for people living with dementia and their family carers. I have created this thread for discussion about the challenges of visits to the hospital for oncology appointments and/or cancer treatment, and how to make this easier for yourself and your loved one. What have been your experiences of oncology appointments and/or cancer treatment and care? What advice would you give to others for making this easier? If you would like to add your own experiences and thoughts to this discussion, please feel free to comment below.
