Who takes care of the Caregiver?
Caring for a person with Parkinson’s disease can be both a demanding and rewarding task. Parkinson’s not only affects the person, but in most cases, the whole family and the person’s network of friends. A caregiver can have multiple responsibilities – helping their loved one with planning a daily schedule, assisting with self-care activities, managing medications, doctor’s visits, running a household, and making an assortment of financial decisions. These things can be stressful and overwhelming.
Here are a few tips and resources to ensure that you are receiving the care you need so that both you and your person with Parkinson’s have the best quality of life possible.
