Debriefing the Caregiver Role 

Parkinson Society British Columbia (PSBC) understands that Parkinson's disease (PD) affects more than just the individual diagnosed. It impacts the lives of families, friends, and carepartners.

When a loved one passes away, it is one of life's most difficult experiences. You may find yourself struggling with many intense and frightening emotions leaving you feeling isolated or alone. Connecting with others at this time guides the grieving process.

To help you through this journey and find that you are not alone, we invite you to join us on Thursday, December 15 for an online group session to learn and share experiences about loss and grief. Parkinson Society BC (PSBC) offers this workshop to those who have recently lost a loved one with Parkinson’s disease within the last two years. This session will be led by Elaine Book, Social Worker at the Pacific Parkinson's Research Centre, and Courtney Doherty, Clinical Counsellor at PSBC.

Please note that the webinar access link and teleconference numbers will be sent via email 24 hours before the session to those who register.

Date: Thursday, December 15
Time: 10:00am – 11:30am PT
Capacity: 25
Cost: Free

For those unavailable to join this session, Parkinson Society BC also offers a professionally facilitated Bereavement Support Group open to anyone who is dealing with the challenges of loss and grief. The group meets every second Wednesday at 1:00pm. Click here to learn more and register.
