Family finances are unlikely to improve even if paid employment continues to be possible. At times, even the healthiest dialysis or transplant patient can have periods of illness that interfere with income and career, not just for the patient but often for the healthy partner as well.
Help is often needed sorting out income support and housing issues, not just once but repeatedly as your condition changes. The kidney Society provides information, advice and help in dealing with these problems.
“It is such a relief to have someone help me sort my benefit application out. It is very scary when you don’t know where to start.”
