The importance of caregiving

Family caregivers play an important, often overlooked role in supporting those living with kidney disease.

A new episode of the web series “House Call with Dr. Yvette Lu” shines a light on this vital support by visiting Can-SOLVE CKD patient partners Carol Connolly and Ken Litchfield in Calgary.

The show highlights Carol’s dedication to caring for Ken and explores the impact of caregiving on her health and well-being. We are also introduced to the importance of self-care as well as the unexpected therapeutic benefits of goat yoga!

Dr. Yvette Lu is family physician who practices in Surrey, BC. She frequently speaks about medical issues on CityTV’s Breakfast Television and other news programs. In this web series, Dr. Lu visits caregivers across Canada to learn about their lives and the challenges that they face. Then, working with each individual caregiver, she helps them find practical solutions and implement changes to improve their lives.
