Caring for people who have Parkinson's disease

Caring for a loved one with PD can be a challenging job, especially as the disease progresses. Former caregivers of a loved one with PD suggest getting prepared, taking care of yourself, getting help (don’t try to do it all yourself), working to maintain a good relationship with your loved one, and encourage the person with PD for whom you care, to stay active.
