I am currently the primary caregiver for my mom, who is dealing with a recurrence of colon cancer. She is in no way dependant on me, quite the opposite. She is still very independent except when she has just had a treatment. She is currently getting chemo treatments every other week and does not feel good right after her treatment. I go to every doctor's appointment and there is always someone with her when she has her treatments. The problem I'm having is that she does not want to ask and is reluctant to accept help. I call her every day and she says everthing is fine even when it is not. How do I and other family members help her without her feeling we are overreacting? We don't know how she is handling this but what her to know that we are always there for her.
