New Keynote: Parkinson’s: Two Sides of the Same Coin

60 to 90 Minutes Presentation

Most Parkinson’s conferences focus on the person living with the disease. This keynote is unique in that it addresses the challenges experienced by both caregivers and care receivers. Elaine examines the lives of four couples and how each of them are managing the losses, challenges, and changes in their relationships due to Parkinson’s Disease.

Caregivers and care receivers come away: 

  • Understanding that Parkinson’s is not a one-person disease
  • With a greater awareness of the losses and stress experienced by both the caregiver and the care receiver 
  • The importance of end-of-life planning

Until then, read what the meeting planner and attendees at the Parkinson’s Support and Wellness Spring Forum in Cincinatti had to say about Elaine’s new keynote: 

“As Co-Chair of the Program Committee for Parkinson Support and Wellness, Inc., I was delighted with Elaine’s keynote address for caregivers and persons with Parkinson’s entitled, “Two Sides of the Same Coin: Dealing with the Emotional Stress of Parkinson’s.” Her  approach of using several case studies along with the animated slides not only held everyone’s attention but illustrated so well the struggles and rewards of dealing with Parkinson’s. Her presentation was both creative and comforting.”

– Mary Inkrot Schroeder, Co-Chair, Program Committee
