Many organisations offer self care and self management courses
to support people living with a long-term condition such as
Parkinson's and their carers. Courses
are available across the UK.
Self management and self care courses or programmes aim to
increase the confidence of people living with Parkinson's and help
them take more control of their own condition.
Courses for carers explore the practical and emotional issues of
daily life, offering opportunities for learning new skills and
meeting other carers. They enable carers to think about their own
needs, health and wellbeing.
Caring for someone with Parkinson's
As well as practical information on the care you provide our
advice for carers looks at the
importance of taking care of yourself and your finances.
