Life is known to throw curve balls but the worst ones to hit, are when a loved one develops a serious illness. The fears and feelings that surface are a mix of many emotions; anger, anxiety, a deep sense of loss. Additionally, there is a sudden helplessness to handle this new situation. Your relationship with the person too, undergoes a transformation, where your loved one suddenly becomes the ‘patient’ and you automatically assume the role of a ‘caregiver’. And this new role that you have suddenly assumed is not really easy to play.
For anyone who has played the role of a caregiver, knows how demanding and draining it is.

The first question that comes to mind, especially in a situation that develops quickly, sometimes even overnight, is how do you handle being a caregiver?
Encounter with the News
The first moments when one gets the news of a loved one’s diagnosis is a time of high stress for everyone. The person suddenly has to deal with hospitals, doctors, treatments, surgery, and a complex maze of professional services with which he was so far completely unfamiliar. At this stage what one needs the most is ‘authentic information’.
Most caregivers are immediate family members of the patient who do not have any “information” or ‘specialised training’ in handling the patients. The trauma of the disease is of high impact for both the patient as well as the caregiver. The greater the patient’s agony, the tougher it is for the caregiver.

There are hordes of issues and questions that one is dealing with like, “I don’t know whom to consult or where to go and what to do,”. “Who is the best specialist or surgeon to handle this case?.” , “Whom can I seek a second opinion from?”.

The situation is even tougher for caregivers and patients staying in smaller cities and towns with fewer hospitals and specialized doctors. In such situations, many don’t even have the information they need to cope successfully with the illness they suddenly are forced to deal with: “What do the symptoms mean?” “Why won’t the medicine work?” .«Whom do I consult?’, ‘Where do I go for treatment’?, ‘Who is the best doctor for it’?

Others have difficulty envisioning the future: “What can I expect?” they ask. “How should I make arrangements?, “What would be the expense«? “, ” How long will it take for the treatment?”, ” Is my insurance or Medicare going to pay?”
