I am a caregiver of a dialysis patient. We are looking into home dialysis,
I have one question is there any caregiver out there that are as afraid of needles and shoots as I am. I’m not sure I can stick him with a needle. Any thoughts or suggestions to help me making a decision to go forward with home care

chris don't know if this will help (and I am not a caregiver) but some centers have "practice arms" used for training. This way you can get used to sticking without having to worry too much. Also depending on patient maybe they can cannulate themselves, we used to have facility that had a self care bay, where patients stuck themselves.
hope it helps good luck
