Summary

Caregivers offer critical support throughout a loved one's journey with Parkinson's disease. They are a major part of any care team, helping to make adjustments to daily life and adapt to new routines. In this webinar, we will explore how caregivers can help manage a friend or family member's health after a Parkinson's diagnosis. We will also discuss how to maintain a healthy and supportive relationship with your loved one, as well as the importance of self-care.

Our panel will feature Lonnie Ali, Founder of The Muhammad Ali Center, member of The Michael J. Fox Foundation Founders Council and caregiver to husband Muhammad Ali. Diane Breslow, MSW, LCSW, Parkinson's Disease Consultant, and lead Social Worker of Chicago Safra Wellness Program†will also join the panel. This webinar is moderated by veteran broadcast journalist Dave Iverson, who also emcees the Partners in Parkinson's community events.
