Some say it feels as though the diagnosis became etched in their hearts with a permanent maker on that day. Nearly all wish they could “do something.”
Family members can indeed become a part of the process by participating in Acclivity’s unique platform that provides access to patient designated individuals who wish to participate in the care journey of their loved one.
