Mental Wellness for Parkinson’s Care Partners – view anytime

Categories : WEBINARS

As a Parkinson’s care partner, you provide an invaluable service to your loved one. You didn’t ask for it but here you are. Having to step into the role of care partner is a big change and often a significant stressor. And as time goes by it’s easy to become so focused on your person with Parkinson’s that you put your own needs on the back burner. This can lead to caregiver burnout or in its extreme, compassion fatigue, where you become overwhelmed physically, emotionally, spiritually, and socially to the point where you’re unable to care for yourself or others. In this webinar, social worker Elaine Book discussed: 

  • Common challenges of being a Parkinson’s care partner 
  • Signs you might be on the verge of burnout
  • Strategies for avoiding burnout
  • A common challenge many care partners face and how to reduce the stress it causes
  • A simple roadmap for daily mental health care
