Care Partner Support Programs

When someone you love is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD), it is natural to feel a range of emotions from confusion to anger to fear.  Taking care of yourself is as important as caring for your loved one with PD.  APDA is here to help with resources and support programs designed specifically for you.
