Are you living with health problems?

SHAREHealth problems such as stroke, arthritis, kidney disease, and many others can cause us to need help to do many of the things we are used to doing on our own. Usually, our closest family member or friend does most of the helping. This can leave you and your loved one feeling stressed out and worried about the future. The Support, Health, Activities, Resources, and Education (SHARE) program can help you and the person who helps you most, together.
