Not sure if you’re a caregiver? The American Cancer Society defines caregiver as the person who most often helps the person with cancer and is not paid to do so. Caregivers may be partners, family members, or close friends. Most often, they’re not trained for the caregiver job. Many times, they’re the lifeline of the person with cancer.

Appointments are required and can be made by calling SpaFjor, 401-848-4848.
