Undergoing a surgical or medical procedure can be one of the most difficult times in a person’s life. Typically, people rely on family members to help them through the process and manage their care. But what if you don’t have family members who can step into that caregiving role?

This workbook provides a detailed overview of what to expect when undergoing a surgical procedure, and how to
plan for a successful recovery. Includes step-by-step instructions to create your own care plan, including worksheets, resources, and tips/encouragement for reaching out to others.

This guide is also available for download in Spanish here.

Copies of the Care Planning Worksheets are available for download here.
