What to ex­pect in the chemo treat­ment room

C.A.R.E. - - Living With Cancer -

Ask your doc­tor how long it will take, as it varies quite a bit. You can ask a friend to visit or stay with you the en­tire time. The room will have friendly vol­un­teers of­fer­ing you and your fam­ily snacks, warm blan­kets and pil­lows. You’ll be rest­ing in a re­clin­ing chair while you re­ceive treat­ment. You’ll also be able to ex­pe­ri­ence mu­sic and pet ther­apy with spe­cially trained ser­vice dogs, or you can sleep, read, play games, write, use your lap­top or do quiet ac­tiv­i­ties that help you re­lax.
