As the calendar turns to November, we would like to take a moment to recognize and thank caregivers during National Caregivers Month.
Caregivers play an important role in the well-being of those living with Parkinson’s, and the wonderful work they do on a daily basis may often times be overlooked.
Which is why November is an important month to put aside some time to recognize caregivers you know and show them your appreciation. From providing a day of respite, to acting as a sounding board or just helping with small things around the house, there are many ways individuals can show their family caregiver appreciation.
Need some ideas? Here is a list of 30 Ways to Honor Caregivers from our national headquarters.
A new initiative launched by NPFM, CareMAP, is a great resource center for caregivers, especially those living with advanced Parkinson’s. The website has a local tie, with Struthers Parkinson’s Center’s Rose Wichmann and Joan Gardner helping bring the project to life.
