CAREGIVER.COM CHANNELS


The MAIN MENU has other links that have information, resources & support on particular diseases, conditions, support and other topics.

The better informed you are about caring for someone or for yourself, the better your decisions will be.  You will have a better understanding of the condition, so you will have more realistic expectations and will be better prepared to handle unexpected situations that may arise.

Please discuss with your doctor or health care professional any questions or concerns you may have.  They can also provide you with resources and possibilities.  Take a list of issues that you need to address to the next health appointment or call their practice and ask to speak to a nurse.  If they cannot take your call at that moment, they will usually call you back within a day.
