All patients know how important their families and friends are in their overall health and well-being. In addition to the invaluable emotional support, caregivers also provide the necessary physical and even financial support that is needed to “get through it”. It is a tough “job”!
The Foundation works with a small group of caregivers and medical professionals to develop “caregiver resources”. Here you will find caregiver stories and perspectives as well as links to online resources that may benefit you directly.
In addition, we encourage you to review the materials posted in the “For Patient” section of our website so that you can familiarize yourself with some of the issues and challenges that your loved one will face. We also encourage you to connect with other caregivers either at local support group meetings or on some of the many online forums available to you.
Please feel free to contact us to let us know what type of information or support you need. We will do our best to help you.
