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.
