When a Family Member is Diagnosed with Lupus

Family life inevitably changes when a family member is diagnosed with lupus. Chores need to be redistributed, responsibilities shared, and everyone in the family must try to remain flexible. There will be emotional considerations as well.

Open communication within the family about lupus may help to allay fears and help to foster an understanding and supportive environment for all family affected by the disease.

Learn steps that your family can take together on this new journey.
