Your announcement.: 

If you’ve taken on caregiving for a loved one in recent years and face the challenges of balancing the healthcare needs of your loved one with your own needs, we want to hear your views.

The role of the caregiver, particularly in medical decision-making, is a role taken on urgently, without warning – and often with little expertise.  Yet the needs, challenges and issues that we face as we voluntarily care for loved ones with chronic and/or debilitating illnesses or conditions can be overwhelming and time-consuming.

Our hope is that your insights will help lead to better support for caregivers in this important role. More than 70 organizations are partnering on this survey because of their keen interest in helping you, the caregiver, as you navigate medical and care decisions that affect you and your loved one.

Findings from the survey will be published, shared widely through our partners’ networks and posted on the Rx4good website. If you have questions about the survey, please contact us at info@rx4good.com.
