In a pair of video presentations, Right at Home Director of Quality Care Lorraine Grote Johnson, R.N., B.S.N., shares information about the importance of nutrition in helping cancer patients maintain the best possible health during treatment.

Family caregivers play a major role in a cancer patient's journey to recovery. They shoulder a myriad of responsibilities, from helping the patient attend doctor appointments, to providing emotional support, to tending to the nutritional needs of the patient.

Nutrition can be a challenge during cancer treatment. In the videos, Grote Johnson dispels some misconceptions about the topic. She also offers advice on working with the patient's care team, adapting foods for patients who are undergoing chemotherapy, and nutrition issues for patients who are receiving hospice or palliative care.
