National Family Caregiver Month
There are many ways to get involved this November. Rhona Johnson, a member of PDF’s People with Parkinson’s Advisory Council, whose late husband lived with Parkinson’s, noted, “No care partner can do it all. I urge Parkinson’s care partners to seek support and ask for the help that they need. PDF’s programs will help you to navigate caregiving so that Parkinson’s is a part of life, but not what defines it.”
