How Caregivers Can Help

Provide general advice, support, and information as appropriate, such as:

• If the patient's visual fields are inadequate, advise them not to drive.

• Advise the patient about any likely reaction to drugs (such as drowsiness).

• Write to an employer if requested.

• Support an application, or an appeal, to the Benefits Agency (UK).

• Suggest that the patient contact a support organization that may be able to help with insurance or information for employers.
