Care Partner Wellness
Do you care for a loved one with Parkinson’s? Are you a spouse of someone with Parkinson’s? Does one of your parents or family members have Parkinson’s and ask you for help occasionally?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are a “family care partner.” There are more than 1.8 million households in California that are providing this type of family care, so you are certainly not alone. However, sometimes you can feel alone and isolated as a care partner. You can also feel overwhelmed by the physical, financial and legal responsibilities you have.
Care partners can greatly benefit from support groups, whether they be Parkinson’s specific or general caregiver groups. As with the person with Parkinson’s, having the opportunity to share with others can be liberating and therapeutic. Many of our support groups break out into separate meetings for care partners and people with Parkinson’s after the education presentation.
This FREE workshop is designed to educate and support family care partners, and covers an array of topics important to the caregiver including:
- The Wellbeing of Care Partners
- Dealing with Emotional & Cognitive Changes in Parkinson’s
- Community Resources for Parkinson’s
