Macmillan Cancer Care Support

If you are looking after a family member, friend or a neighbour living with cancer in Harrow, we are here to support you.

We are here to help reduce any additional emotional burden you are carrying, whilst helping you to make informed choices about matters that are vital to you and the person you care for. We help providing a safe place to talk with someone who appreciates what you may be going through and how challenging it can be. We offer arrange of therapeutic services and we liaise with other health professionals on your behalf in order to find out any additional information that will provide you with adequate support.

At Harrow Carers’ Macmillan service, we want to let carers know that it is equally important that they look after their own health and emotional well-being. Self-care is important for carers to ensure that you can continue to provide support to your dependents without compromising your own health. This service has been designed to be accessible for you in the comfort of your own home or a place of your choice where we can discuss your support needs.
