Confide in someone outside of your family
Find a friend that is trustworthy and be open with them about the difficulties of this ordeal. Shutting oneself off from the rest of the world is sure to be a recipe for disaster. Besides physical health, a caregiver’s mental health is also important. Joining a support group is also helpful. Not everybody has the same experience in dealing with a family member or loved one with Parkinson’s disease, but knowing that others are also in the similar situation and that they are not alone can help one feel nurtured.
