Young Onset Parkinson's Disease Webinar Series: Coping as a Carepartner
Young Onset Parkinson's Disease (YOPD) is generally defined as a diagnosis of Parkinson’s before the age of 60. Because of the age of diagnosis, the needs of those with YOPD will differ from those with later-onset Parkinson's. Elaine Book, social worker at Pacific Parkinson's Research Centre, joins Parkinson Society BC for this webinar series aimed at addressing some of the specific issues faced by people affected by YOPD.
This session will be co-facilitated by a carepartner of a YOPD individual and will cover some of the feelings and challenges that a carepartner of someone with YOPD may experience. Methods for coping will also be discussed.
We encourage participants to bring their questions to each session as there will be time set aside for Q&A and discussion.
Registration for this event will close on Monday, November 4.
