Every November, the Parkinson’s Foundation joins with organizations around the world to honor care partners for National Family Caregivers Month. This year, more than ever, these care partners deserve recognition. Join us as we honor your #HeroAtHome.
Honor Your #HeroAtHome
Care partners are vital as we work toward living well with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Download our sign to show your loved one how much you appreciate all they do. Hang it on your door, a window, in your car or anywhere your care partner will see it.
We’d love to see your sign at home. Share photos of your sign or your care partner using #HeroAtHome and we’ll share it on our social media channels and help honor your care partner.

Join the Conversation
You are not alone in your caregiving journey. Find an online community and a brief escape from isolation through PD Conversations, an online community where you can ask questions and explore trending topics. There’s even a discussion group dedicated to information and tips on caregiving!
Care to Talk?
We’ve joined together with AARP to create this set of "Care to Talk" cards that offers 12 ways for care partners to spark important conversations with each other. Check them out and play today in English or Spanish.
Share Your Story
We want to hear from you. If you’re a care partner, tell us about your caregiving journey. If you have Parkinson’s and have a care partner, tell us your story and how your care partner helps make life better. We collect these real-life stories and publish them as My PD Stories. Check them out and submit yours today.
