Transplant caregiver education
One of the most vital things in your transplant process is your personal caregiver.
A caregiver is someone who gives physical and emotional support before, during, and after the surgery.
Your caregiver will come to all visits with your transplant team, so you are both educated about transplantation.
Before the transplant, the caregiver helps provide support and educates themselves on the transplantation process.
Attend medical appointments
Learn about medications
Prepare a care plan
After transplantation, a caregiver helps the patient follow instructions and get through their daily tasks.
Help schedule and get you to clinic appointment and lab draws
Healthy diet and exercise
Help with daily activities (personal hygiene, cooking, cleaning, errands, etc.)
