Coping with and caring for a family member or grieving for one calls on the depths of inner strength – both physical and emotional. Your doctors and hospital social worker can refer you to local sources for support and respite, and the Internet can also be a source of comfort – especially if leaving the house is difficult.
Important: There are sites that provide reliable scientific information that has been researched, and there are sites, usually identified as groups or chat rooms, that are online communities of other patients or family members where you can share your hopes and frustrations.
Medline Plus is a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. This is a great place to find research-based information. Their alphabetical list of links to Organizations by Health Topics is quite comprehensive. From the links found there, you can find other links to suit your needs and interest.
Below are common topics with a few research-based and support group sites to get you started.
