How You Can Help Your Grandchild
Often, grandparents’ feelings of helplessness are stronger when they are not actively involved in caring for the child with cancer or their immediate family.
If you live close by, the list of ways you can help is infinite. Use your knowledge of the family’s regular activities to guide you in what will be most helpful. Always check with the family before doing things, to avoid misunderstandings or upset.
If you live far away, knowing how to help can be very challenging. There are, however, many ways you can offer support.
Visit the Family and Friends section for suggestions of practical ways to help.
