A big part of making life better for people with Parkinson’s is taking care of the people who care for them. Each person with Parkinson’s is unique, and so is each caregiver. Caregivers have an enormous, often underappreciated job. Here at the Parkinson’s Foundation, we recognize the work you are doing to support your loved one and have dedicated a day just for you.
Focusing on Collaborative Care, the 2018 Parkinson’s Foundation Caregiver Summit | Cumbre Para Cuidadores is a free event specifically for caregivers of people living with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Bilingual sessions, in English and Spanish, will include: Intimacy and PD, Communication & Coping Strategies, and Collaborative Caregiving in Action.
Summit will be broadcast live from Phoenix, Arizona to satellite locations across the country and online. The content will be recorded and archived for later viewing.
