Carers have no life of their own

You only have to read some of the real life carers' stories on our website to realise the incredible physical, emotional and financial toll involved in caring for a loved one with Parkinson's.

That's why we're one of seven national charities supporting Carers Week (14-20 June) this year, which is centred on the theme, 'a life of my own' - highlighting the everyday things that carers often give up to fulfil their vital role.

Over 10,000 events and activities are taking place across the country to let carers know that they're not alone, and that help and support is available. We will also be running information events for carers of people with Parkinson's

We'd love to hear about your plans for activities around Carers Week. Also, if you have a carers' story to share then you can comment here, or email us at
