Staying Healthy as a Care Partner
This course is part of the Parkinson's Foundation Care Partner Program. Care partners of people with Parkinson's are encouraged to pick the courses that are most relevant to them and complete them at their own pace. Whether you sit down and complete this course in one sitting or spread it out over the next week or month, we estimate that this course will take about an hour to complete.
This course is focused on how care partners can prioritize themselves to ensure that they'll be able to stay healthy as they care for their loved ones. Course themes include self-care, time management, and finding resources and support.
This course is appropriate for all care partners but will be especially helpful for care partners who are earlier on their caregiving journey.
Our hope is that care partners who take this course will:
- Learn ways to better take care of yourself.
- Learn ways to be a better care partner.
- Feel less alone in your challenges to prioritize yourself as the care partner.
