Join us for our final The Victory Summit® Virtual Event of 2021 on Saturday, November 13, to celebrate National Care Partner Appreciation Month and shine a spotlight on the Parkinson’s care partner experience.
Whether you have just begun caring for someone who has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, are dealing with a substantial progression of symptoms, or you’ve been caring for someone who has had Parkinson’s for a long time, a strong support network is critical to your own well-being.
The truth is unless you’re a medical professional who has been caring for people as your life’s work, having to step into the role of care partner is a big change and often a significant stressor. And it can take its toll on you – physically, emotionally, spiritually, and otherwise. This can lead to caregiver burnout or in its extreme, compassion fatigue, where you become overwhelmed physically, emotionally, spiritually, and socially to the point where you’re unable to care for yourself or others.
During this event, you will learn from and interact with Parkinson’s care partner experts, Parkinson’s care partners, and mental wellness professionals who will help you become the care partner your person with Parkinson’s needs without burning out, losing yourself, and losing the joy of life. By the end of the day, you will have a whole new community of support at your fingertips and a toolbox of practices that will help you thrive as a Parkinson’s care partner.
