The Parkinson's Foundation makes life better for people with Parkinson's disease by improving care and advancing research toward a cure. In everything we do, we build on the energy, experience and passion of our global Parkinson's community. The Parkinson's Foundation was formed by the merger of the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) and the Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF), both established in 1957, with offices in New York and Miami.
A big part of making life better for people with Parkinson's is taking care of the people who care for them. Each person with Parkinson’s is unique, and so is each caregiver. Caregivers have an enormous, often underappreciated job. Parkinson's Foundation recognizes the work caregivers are doing to support their loved one and have dedicated a day just for them. Focusing on Collaborative Care, the 2018 Parkinson’s Foundation Caregiver Summit | Cumbre Para Cuidadores
is a free on-demand event specifically for caregivers of people living with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Bilingual sessions, in English and Spanish, include: Intimacy and PD, Communication & Coping Strategies, and Collaborative Caregiving in Action.
