Message From The President - November 2022Category: Message From The President
November is National Family Caregivers Month, a time to reflect on and appreciate the incredible efforts of family caregivers, raise awareness of caregiver issues, and educate communities to increase support for our oft-overlooked caregiver class.
As caregivers ourselves, PRO has long recognized the unique sacrifices and needs of Parkinson’s caregivers. That’s why we offer several support groups a month dedicated to caregivers. Our Partner in Care meetings offer the opportunity to laugh, cry, vent, and release frustrations in a loving and sympathetic space.
We also want all our caregivers to know when it feels like there’s nowhere else to turn, we’re here to take your call. Let us know what you need, and we’ll let you know what we can do to help. And if we don’t have an immediate answer to your questions, we won’t rest until we find one.
We appreciate you, and you are not alone.
We’re so excited by all of the activities that transpired in October. The read this month is exemplary, starting with the Update on The Road to the Cure on this page. Check out the other articles, like NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL CAREGIVER’S MONTH on page 2; A PICTURE IS WORTH MORE THAN A THOUSAND WORDS on page 3; WINNERS AND MORE WINNERS AT PRO’S INAUGURAL BRISKET COOK-OFF COMPETITION on page 4; FOURTH ANNUAL DON CAVANAUGH DAY ON NOVEMBER 13TH, also on page 4; WHAT DOES THE SCIENCE SAY ABOUT HOW LONELINESS AFFECTS OUR HEALTH? on page 5, and; HOW SUGAR IS LINKED TO DEMENTIA AND HOW TO CURB YOUR SWEET CRAVINGS on page 6.
Thank you for all you do for PRO. Your donations keep us whole.
