Caring for someone with Parkinson's is a 24/7 job — one that often receives little recognition. No matter where you're from or what language you speak, these men and women are heroes, worthy of our love, respect and unwavering support.
To honor these dedicated caregivers, we've created a special event. Our first ever Thank a Caregiver Week will be held the first week in November, the 4th through the 10th.
Thanking a caregiver is easy!
- Pick a time during November 4-10 to celebrate. It can be any day of the week or time that works best.
- Find someone who can volunteer to help with caregiving duties so the caregiver can have a break.
- Plan an activity for the caregiver to enjoy during their time off.
- Share your story and photos to pay tribute to the amazing caregiver in your life! NPF will help you honor caregivers through a special online tribute page dedicated to Thank a Caregiver Week. We'll display your photo and story online and on NPF's Facebook page during the month of November. You will also be entered into a raffle to win a "Beat Parkinson's" wristband and NPF lapel pin!
Check out these words of advice, inspirational ideas and other tips to help make this week-long event a success!
