Helping someone with a chronic condition can be difficult. It may seem like nothing you do is helping. Remember that simple things like those below can make a huge difference, even if you don’t see the results immediately.
Just staying to listen can often be exactly what is needed and what is rarely offered.
As best you can, keep a positive, encouraging attitude. You don’t always need to find solutions. Being supportive offers as much relief as treatments.
Help with cooking and cleaning is always appreciated.
Point out small improvements that you see.
If needed, help keep track of upcoming appointments or provide transportation.
