Patient Commando’s Survival Guide: How to Survive and Thrive During Hospital Stays and Long-Term Care.
An excerpt from our Survival Guide:
So, you’ve just been told you have a “serious” or “chronic” illness…
Suddenly, everything has changed. Not just your state of health, but your lifestyle, your routines, your sense of comfort and safety, even your access to your home. You might require a hospital stay or some form of long-term care. Now what?
Despite all our best efforts to create a life that is predictable, change has a way of sashaying through our garden gates and kicking us out of our lawn chairs. But the reality is, we can’t stop change. But that’s okay, because if we understand that change always happens, we are more prepared to cope with it.
The other good news is, you don’t have to do it alone.
