About

Although caring for someone you love can be very rewarding, it also can be a tough and demanding role, compounded further by limited information and resources. The following courses are designed to provide useful information and interactive exercises and tools targeted toward your wellbeing as a caregiver.

The following programs are offered so caregivers may participate in one or all of the programs.

Caring For You, Caring For Me

Developed by the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving this educational and supportive program is for people who are caring for individuals with a disability. The 5-week program provides caregivers with an opportunity to gain information on being a caregiver an opportunity to recognize and react to the stresses and strains of being a caregiver, discover ways of communicating and working together to reduce frustrations and barriers in caregiving, recognizing that they are not alone, and learning from their emotions

Caring for You, Caring for Me Support Group for Class Participants Only

Following the 5-week program of gaining information on being a caregiver and recognizing the stresses and strains of being a caregiver, we’ll continue to discover ways of communicating, working together to reduce frustrations, and barriers in caregiving while learning resources as we go.

Care Partner Only Support Groups

A comfortable and safe space where Care Partners can come together and share resources, struggles and frustrations. While also walking away with additional tools to use in their care partner toolkit.

Caregiver Workshop

November is National Family Caregiver month. Join us in recognizing family carepartners to people with Parkinson’s through a workshop designed to provide education, relaxation, and a connection with others.
