Talking about Parkinson’s

Talking about Parkinson’s

We encourage you talk to the person with Parkinson’s and your family about how you will navigate this together Consider discussing what being a caregiver might look like now and in the future as Parkinson’s it might also be a good time to talk about future care and what each of you would like in the event that either one of you has a medical emergency and cannot speak for yourself

Changing Roles

At the beginning of the journey the relationship you share with the person with Parkinson’s may not change much You may be more of a care partner that is you are partnering together to care for one another if Parkinson’s advances to a point that reduces a person’s independence you may find yourself moving from partnering role to a care giving role it can be easy to let words like caregiver become labels that take over your identity This new role is only part of who you are as a complete person And a caregiver you also have Parkinson’s and common questions include How will care giving change my work finances independence and the dreams I had for our life How quickly will Parkinson’s progress How will my role as a partner family member or friend change as Parkinson’s progresses How can I adapt to these changes Will I have the skills and strength to do what is needed What will happen if can’t manage.
