Family Caregivers

At the OHSU Parkinson Center, we know a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease affects your whole family.

We believe family members are an important part of a patient's care team. That's why we support and educate family caregivers just as we do patients.

In fact, we have a family caregiver specialist who is dedicated to supporting caregivers and helping them find the information and resources they need.

We suggest the following Web sites for further information, support and resources:
