As the wife of a husband with Parkinson’s Disease (PD), I know the daily challenges we face. When everything is normal, it is difficult to maneuver through all the tasks required to live as regular a life as possible. Now that we are isolated due to the Covid-19 virus, it is even more demanding to have limited to no support while we face this ‘new normal’ of staying safe. This led me to start a virtual support group for wives and companions of a PD loved one.
This is a “virtual” group that meets the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM using the Zoom video conferencing software. It is an open group for us to talk about things happening with us and to provide information, ideas, and support to each other. Use the following information to join the meeting using Zoom:
