Many people in this forum are caring for a loved one with Parkinson’s, and for many, it is their first time serving in a care-giving role. I thought it might be helpful to have a place to store all of our frequently asked questions (FAQ) and hopefully, over time, members who are more experienced with caregiving can return to this post and offer some answers and advice in response to the questions.
So, what are your caregiver questions?! I’ll start: what are some things that a caregiver should be aware of when it comes to expenses/finances related to caring for another person? Are there special loans or grants out there to help people with the expense of caring for another person or to cover things like respite care?
