Caring for someone with Parkinson's

Do you help support or care for a partner, friend or family member with Parkinson's? We're here for you too.

Share your experiences of being a carer during the coronavirus pandemic

Carers UK has launched a survey to understand how the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact the lives of carers.

Your responses will help Carers UK in their ongoing work to influence the Government, highlight carers’ experiences in the media, and ensure their advice and information resources are appropriate for carers’ needs. 

The survey will take 15-20 minutes to complete and is open until Sunday 27 September.

"As I was the main carer, I needed someone to talk to, and I didn't get that. One day the doctor said 'How are you today?' For the first time I felt human because somebody actually asked how I was."

Tahira shares her experience of being a carer in our short film.
