"After meeting so many families in search of guidance and support for their loved ones, I came up with the idea of creating an online community with information and resources to help patients, their families, and caregivers get answers to their most challenging medical questions."
NEWARK, N.J. (PRWEB) October 22, 2019
Wellness Resource Support is a new member services website launching this month to help patients and caregivers find the resources they need to manage their medical care. As healthcare remains a popular topic for debate among today’s community and political leaders, we hear endless discussions about insurance and how to pay for care. Covering the expense of healthcare is important, but even greater issues exist relating to how care is managed. Wellness Resource Support’s membership community now offers guidance, resources, and tools to those facing challenging decisions about their health and medical care.
Too many patients and caregivers are confronted with medical terminology and scenarios that they don’t understand when they or a loved one falls ill. Things seem to move at warp speed and important decisions need to be made quickly. Wellness Resource Support’s founder and CEO, Robyn Maniscalco, had this very experience when her mother was hospitalized after having a severe stroke.
The type of stroke Maniscalco’s mother experienced was rare and led to a lot of uncertainty and unknowns. She soon learned that doctors and medical staff often may not have the time (or take the time) to fully explain conditions, options, and support resources to patients, their caregivers, and family.
“It took many hours of independent research, reading, and questioning to find useful information, tools, and resources that helped my family support my mother through this difficult time,” explains Maniscalco. “As I learned more, I helped others I met along the way in similar circumstances. After meeting so many families in search of guidance and support for their loved ones, I came up with the idea of creating an online community with information and resources to help patients, their families, and caregivers get answers to their most challenging medical questions.”
Just after her stroke, Maniscalco's mother was in a coma followed by eight months of being in a vegetative state. The challenges of caring for an immobile person were draining physically, mentally, and emotionally. Based on the challenges faced in her caregiving journey, Maniscalco worked with her team to create a guide with resources for other caregivers.
