What’s the problem?
Family and friends are always important when you have mesothelioma, but you may also find it beneficial to be in contact with others who share similar challenges. It has been shown that emotional support and open patient discussion of issues helps cancer patients’ quality of life.
Mesothelioma Support Services
In addition to family and friends, mesothelioma patients should consider the following possible support services:
- Religious Leaders – Members of the clergies of many faiths are trained to deal with the concerns of mesothelioma patients: pain, fear of death, feeling alone, and searching for meaning.
- Home Care Services – State and local governments offer many services useful after cancer treatment. A nurse or physical therapist may be able to come to your home. Check the phone book for non-profit and for-profit social services, health services or aging services.
For loved ones of mesothelioma patients, support groups are also helpful in dealing with both financial and emotional stress. Some cancer support groups are for family members and friends only, while others encourage loved ones to attend with the patient. Many cancer support groups are free, though some require a small fee. Check with your insurance company to see if they can cover the cost.
