We interviewed experts as well as fellow caregivers about what tools, strategies, and tips they have for you and gathered them into one easy-to-digest and incredibly helpful Caregiver Kit so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

Parkinson’s affects more than just one person...

Watching someone you care about live with Parkinson’s disease can feel like a rollercoaster ride emotionally, physically, financially, and spiritually.

…How can you help?

…What are your roles?

…How will this impact your relationship and future together?

There are so many questions and it can become overwhelming, especially if you’re taking on the role of primary caregiver for your loved one.

While everyone’s situation and relationship are unique and take on their own balance and rhythm, there are some tried-and-true strategies that people who have walked in your shoes before can offer to smooth over the rough edges of your side of this Parkinson’s journey.

  • What the Spouse or Close Partner of Someone Diagnosed with Parkinson’s Should Know
