Caring for loved ones with cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic: A double hit risk for social isolation and need for action

Key Points

  • With social distancing and visitors limited in healthcare, caregivers of cancer patients are at increased risk for isolation.
  • Caregivers may have learned particular lessons that can foster resilience from isolation.
  • Telehealth and phone check‐ins offer opportunities to support caregivers.
  • Policy initiatives have the potential to continue support for caregivers post‐COVID.
  • Supporting caregivers is a community effort, and its importance should not be forgotten post‐COVID.
