XNC 8163 - Caring for the Parkinson Patient Long-Term Caregiver 2017

Life changes in an instant if someone you love is diagnosed with a chronic illness. Your routine changes. Your needs and responsibilities change, and sometimes even your roles change. Your life is turned upside down on a dime. Feelings of sadness, anger, and helplessness can surface and in ways you've never experienced before. You may not know where to turn or what to do. You need support, resources and understanding. At this symposium, participants will receive all of these things and more. With leading professionals in senior care and Parkinson's speaking on topics like Medicare services, Parkinson's treatment, and self-care, this symposium will educate participants on how to take care of themselves while balancing the everyday struggles that come along with taking care of a loved one with Parkinson's. Join us for a fun and supportive event centered around the caregiver and their needs. RN, LPNs, social workers, LPCs, LCPCs and registered dieticians will earn 6 contact hours. ACHAs will earn 6 (RC). Approval is pending for PTs and OTs.
