Caring for someone with Parkinson’s
If you are looking after someone with Parkinson’s you can find information around their care needs and support for you from Parkinson’s UK.
Parkinson’s UK sees carers as an equal priority in the support they offer. The easiest way for people to access support and information is through the Parkinson’s Connect team who will triage your call and link you into the most appropriate support to meet your need. You can contact them on their helpline number 0808 800 0303.
They also have Carers Guide to download.
There are around 365 Parkinson’s UK local groups throughout the UK, which are run by volunteers usually who have experience of Parkinson’s. The groups welcome family members and carers, and some involve health or social care professionals.
Many groups hold social events and activities too. Enter your town or postcode into the Parkinson’s UK group finder to find groups and activities that are taking place nearest to you.
