 stock-photo--d-care-self-crossword-on-white-background-123364426Most care is delivered at home and requires that patients and their families are informed about how to care for themselves. The approaches that are used in most patient education is less than satisfactory due to the fact that often patients and families do not really understand what is involved and how to go about self care. To help people with such challenges, a company that understands people and their needs have developed  disease specific tool kits for both acute and chronic illnesses that make self care easy to understand and to do.
