Hi, I am just wandering if anyone has some words of wisdom for a new carer. My nan is now living with my family and I, while she is undergoing palliative care. Although I feel blessed that she has chosen our family to care for her, I am having trouble balancing my own immediate family's privacy with the extended family's visits. I don't feel I can impose 'visiting hours' on my nan's other family members, or can I?
Hi I don't see any problems in having some sort of visiting time - family would realise you have other commitments. You just need to say something like - Could you come between 3 and 7 because I need to do other things and have commitments at other times. I am sure your family would understand especially as you are trying to cope with two families now. Sooziii
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
