Did you have any luck with support groups?
Not sure if you're aware but we have telephone-based support groups that we call TSG's, available for people with advanced cancer as well as people who are caring for someone with cancer.
They are usually for 3-8 people, twice a month for an hour. Participation is also flexible, which is great if you have an appointment or are tied up at work and so forth. They are also free.
The team are back on deck from Monday, you can call them directly on 1300 755 632 and leave a message. Alternatively, send me a message firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and best contact number, and I'll arrange for them to contact you

Hi Lucinda, Thanks so much for your message, it really is helpful to speak with people going through a similar situation, as you just cannot know what it is like until you are in it. Very sadly we lost dad not long after your post, so things have been much, much harder. But yes i have connected with a social worker who was on dads palliative care team, who i am going to continue to see for some grief counselling. Happy to keep in touch if you like too, sending strength and support. Phoebe.
