During December 2018 through March 2019, the CLL Society conducted a poll among readers of The CLL Society Tribune. There were 77 complete responses split evenly between caregivers and patient with 51% being caregivers and 49% being patients.
In an effort to better understand and address the needs of caregivers, we asked our readers’ questions regarding the benefits of caregiver specific support services and education.

Our survey tells us that 87% agree or strongly agree that caregivers would benefit from more medical education and a whopping 92% would benefit from specific services.
The survey then asked respondents to choose which specific services they would like to see made available to caregivers. The top services respondents are interested in seeing made available are: Helpful tips for caregivers offered by other caregivers or experts which was requested by two out of three respondents, followed by Educational opportunities specific to caregiving wanted by more than half.
Caregivers are clearly asking for more education and support.
