The purpose of this guide is to provide first-hand information to you as you care for your loved one. The guide helps you to examine how your life has changed after a loved one has fallen ill or become disabled or after your child has been diagnosed with a chronic disease or disability.
As a relative, you help your loved one to cope with everyday activities, provide mental support and learn how to manage in what may sometimes be a complex jungle of services. Perhaps you are wondering how to combine work and caring for your loved one. Are you a carer?
