Have Someone in Charge

Put someone in charge of visitors during cancer treatment. This may be a friend or family member. This person can handle visitors while you are in another part of your home taking care of your own needs. If you want to have visitors, you can let your friend or loved one know that you will see some people. However, try not to overdo it. If you are feeling tired or don't feel like visiting, it's okay to be honest about it. Don't feel bad if you aren't in the mood or not physically up for visitors.
