In honor of Rare Disease Day on February 28th, Dr. Jon Segal, founder of DiscountMedicalSupplies.com, is speaking out about the challenges facing caregivers of people with rare diseases. This month he was featured in a four-part Caregiving 101 series on Lifetime’s “The Balancing Act.” In the last segment, he focused on caring for those with rare diseases and caregiver mothers.
Dr. Segal used his fourth appearance on The Balancing Act to encourage these special caregivers to seek out the resources and support available to people taking care of someone with a rare disease. “There are hundreds of caregivers out there caring for someone with special needs and they need all the support they can get,” says Dr. Segal. DiscountMedicalSupplies.com recently introduced its Charity Module in support of The Global Genes Project, an organization dedicated to the research, awareness, and education on rare diseases. In addition, Dr. Segal says it is necessary for caregivers to try to maintain a positive attitude. In his experience, the ability to laugh and enjoy oneself can help a caregiver to weather the challenges ahead.
Dr. Segal, who is a caregiver himself, has experienced the same challenges of many other caregivers and understands the role caregivers play in the care of their loved ones. Several years ago, he decided to make a difference by starting an online company serving the needs of caregivers and patients alike. “We believe in giving back to those in need and we are an advocate for the caregivers we serve,” says Dr. Segal. He advises caregivers to take care of themselves and realize that there are many resources out there that provide help and hope.
Among the resources available to caregivers are online medical supply stores, such as DiscountMedicalSupplies.com,that deliver much-needed products to caregivers’doorsteps at a discount.
