Being an Effective Care Partner: The Role of a Care Partner

Care partner:

  • A care partner is chosen by a person with chronic kidney disease (CKD) to assist with treatment and for support
  • A care partner is not the same as a caregiver you share responsibility with the person with CKD
  • Dialysis care partners receive thorough training and have telephone back-up from a dialysis center
  • It takes time to adjust to new treatment routines, but it gets easier
