Caregiver's challenges

My wife got diagnosed with Parkinson's at the age of 44, and we have manages last 8 years with good habbits that arrested the progress of the disease, however I want to know as a caregiver the challenges one faces specially if one is a working how the condition impacts your worklife as a caregiver, as I am looking for forums to keep myself in good health and upbeat about the success over challenges as we take on a difficult challenge.

  1. Hi we appreciate you being here and reaching out. Hopefully other caregivers/care partners will chime in. As we have many here in our community who understand the challenges that come with being a caregiver. Our community is always here for you. Have you considered looking into a local support group? Just a thought. 😀 I included a collection of articles we have for care partners - I also included a couple more articles that I thought may be of interest here - and If we can ever offer a listening ear or help locate any other info, please don't hesitate to reach out. Our community cares and is here for you and your wife. Kindly, Jessica, Team Member
