Jeffrey Roy

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

My mother was diagnosed in 2013. She had two falls and surgery on both hips in 2019, resulting in a hospital stay of 7.5 months. Before she was released in January 2020, they advised us to place her in a care facility because bringing her home would be too risky. We didn’t take their advice; she has been home since her release and is coping and living well. For my mother, this means continuing to eat well, sleep well, exercise daily, and, especially in the past month, do well on reduced medication. For me, it means being more positive and less cranky, exercising, having non-Parkinson’s activities to focus on, and, most of all, being a strong support for my mother.

I look forward to connecting with more people at the Foundation and the Parkinson’s community in general and learning how to be an even better care partner for my mom.

When I have free time, you’ll find me reading thrillers, writing, watching horror movies, exercising, listening to music, and volunteering for soccer clubs in England.
