The importance of

Caregivers play an essential role during
your ABECMA treatment journey.
They are critical in lending a helping hand
to support you before and after your ABECMA infusion.

Not an actual patient and caregiver.

Before your ABECMA infusion, caregivers may help:

  • Take notes and ask questions at the doctor's office and assist with scheduling appointments
  • Organize and relay medical and insurance information to the healthcare team
  • Assist with driving, meal prep, laundry, cleaning, and managing visitors

After your ABECMA infusion, caregivers may help:

  • Watch for symptoms, side effects, and other changes in health and/or behaviors
  • Check and record your temperature at least 3 times a day
  • Speak to the healthcare team when you have questions
  • Call 911 or your healthcare team in the event of a medical emergency

Are you a caregiver?

Being a caregiver can be stressful. It’s okay to alternate care partners if you need to take a break. Coordinate with friends and family as appropriate to ensure around-the-clock coverage while you get the help and support you need.
