Caring for the carer
Jennifer Dann, co-author of Living & Giving: A Guide for Carers and People with Parkinson’s will be speaking at our next event Tuesday, 11 June. She is an award-winning journalist with more than 10 years’ experience in newspapers and radio.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear and share experiences about the partnership of caring from both sides and the importance of ensuring carers receive the care they need.
Living & Giving was launched at Parliament in April to mark World Parkinson’s Day and is for people with Parkinson’s and the people who care for them. It draws on the personal experiences of over forty people living with Parkinson’s, many PwP members, in the hope that sharing their journeys may help readers navigate theirs. This was PwP foundation member Ann Andrews final book which she co-authored with Jennifer, who is passionate about the work of unpaid carers having grown up seeing her mum care for her severely intellectually disabled sister.
All are welcome!
