When diagnosed with a serious illness, life can become stressful, confusing, and even frightening. Illnesses like heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, cancer, Parkinson’s, liver disease, lung disease, and kidney failure often drain energy, decrease spirit, and prevent us from managing even our basic needs. A serious illness can overwhelm family caregivers who juggle new responsibilities, often with little community, spiritual, or social support.
Our Delaware Transitions program can help! Delaware Transitions offers support, education, guidance, and resources at no cost to those living with a serious illness.
Nonmedical support that meets you where you are
Delaware Transitions’ unique level of support helps people wherever they are in their treatment or disease process, including individuals who are hopeful for a cure and are receiving curative treatment. Services are nonmedical in nature and focus on:
- Accessing resources and support.
- Navigating the healthcare system.
- Reducing stress.
- Improving your quality of life.
Services are free of charge and are provided by Delaware Transitions coordinators as well as specially trained volunteers.
