Abstract

With the aging of the population and the evolving health care system, it is more important than ever before that individuals be actively involved in selfcare activities and that individuals and families receive education and support to help them cope with chronic illness. This article describes a model family support program which operates within a hospital setting to provide information, education, support, and respite services. This model is based on an extensive research base which underscores the value of this model both for the individuals and families involved and for the health care system.
