I have been a primary Care Partner for my loved one for the past 12 years. We have experienced and learned much on this Parkinson’s journey. I compare the journey to a river, early on symptoms progress slowly and life is smooth for the most part.
As the journey progresses from calm still waters to running stream and encountering rough waters & surprise waterfalls down stream, I’ve learned to be flexible and do all I can to prepare.
I am a Support Group leader of local NCPSG chapter, attend PD seminars, participate in Care Partner group meetings.
I work part time in the Hospitality Industry and retired after working 33 years in management for JCPenney department store.
I have a passion for people and my mission to serve others.
