Families and carers

If you're a carer of someone with kidney disease, it's important to know you're not alone. We can help provide the support and resources you need.

If someone you love has kidney disease, you may find yourself in a carer role. This may include helping them in daily activities, managing medication, as well as providing emotional, social or financial support. The work carers do to support those living with kidney disease is vital. However, this role can be challenging at times. It’s important for carers to also feel supported throughout the patient’s journey with kidney disease.

Caring for someone with kidney disease

To provide the best care, you need to look after yourself as well. That sometimes means reaching out for help – whether it’s financial, personal support, or respite care for your loved one.
