The new Caring and Coping is a comprehensive guide for caregivers of people with Parkinson’s at any stage. The workbook contains tips and tools to make the caring journey as productive as possible with the least amount of stress. The book focuses on your dual role as a caregiver: caring for someone with Parkinson’s disease, and taking care of yourself.
The book complements CareMAP, NPF’s online guide for people who care for someone with advanced Parkinson’s. The website features 40 how-to videos and caregiver stories that offer practical and personal tips on coping with the complex problems that arise as a result of Parkinson’s (from changes around the house to thinking changes to getting outside help and more).
