Wellness Wednesday

We welcome people living with PD and their care partners who are unsure of how to engage their families or friends to join us for a discussion on building your informal or extended care team. Family members looking to learn more about how to support their loved one with PD will also garner useful perspective and tools. 

We will discuss strategies for self-advocacy, communication around difficult topics, and building your support system. We will also hear from a person with Parkinson’s and their primary care partner about how they have worked together to communicate with each other about needs, engage their adult children/family in understanding the disease (especially non-motor symptoms) and specify ways for them to participate in caregiving and support, from an initial diagnosis through the PD journey.
