PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL CONCERNS
Join a Parkinson disease support group. Encourage your care partner or family members to join you or to
participate in a separate caregiver group.
See a social worker – he or she can help with linking you to community resources and assist with stress, depression, and long-term-care planning.
If you are feeling depressed or anxious, seek regular counseling.
If you are worried about memory or other cognitive issues, see a neuropsychologist for an assessment and treatment.
Use relaxation techniques or meditation to help with stress and anxiety.
Stay positive and active. A positive attitude will help with some of the Parkinson disease symptoms.
