Parkinson's Disease / Caregiving
In Canada today, there are an estimated 4.5 million caregivers.
 
If you are providing care and support for an adult family member, partner, friend or neighbour, you are a caregiver.
 
You probably remember the day when someone close to you said, "I have Parkinson's disease." You may have learned that there is no cure for Parkinson's and that it comes with unpredictable physical and psychological changes. All of this may leave you wondering what it means to be a carepartner/caregiver.
 
Parkinson Society British Columbia recognizes the unique challenges facing people who care for a person with Parkinson's. We have created a pamphlet as a starting point for you.

Parkinson Society British Columbia Caregiver Groups
 
PSBC has nine support groups exclusively for caregivers.  Please visit our SUPPORT GROUPS PAGE for more information.
 
Please note, as many of these groups are small, fluctuating participation may cause occasional cancellation of the meetings. Please contact Robbin before attending, or for more information call 604 662 3240 or SEND AN EMAIL.
