Life in the Corner of a Care Partner
Care Partners often push their own needs aside in a selfless effort to be more present for their loved ones.
Caregiving for a loved one with a serious and chronic illness, such as Parkinson’s disease, is among the most stressful tasks that many people will face throughout their lives. The strain can be felt emotionally, physically, cognitively and socially. Often, the care partner is too busy with the actual tasks associated with the role to bother caring for themselves. This can lead to burnout and illness on the part of the care partner; which then renders them unable to care well for their loved one. It can become a vicious circle.
