Carepartner Support Programs & Resources

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.

2022 Caregiver Support Series

We are offering several sessions of the 6-week Powerful Tools for Caregivers series in 2022.

Powerful Tools is a six week educational series designed to provide you, the caregiver, with tools needed to take care of yourself while caring for a loved one. Classes consist of interactive sessions; discussions and brainstorming to help you take the “tools” you choose and put them into action in your life.
