This forum is a great source of support from people who understand exactly what you’re going through. But there may be times when you want to chat to another carer one to one.
The Parkinson’s UK peer support service offers short term telephone support from trained volunteers with a similar experience to you. You can talk to them about anything to do with Parkinson’s, including different ways of coping with the condition.
The service launched in July last year and 34 people have already benefited from it. 94% said they would recommend the service to others.
The service is free, completely confidential and easy to arrange. Just call our helpline on 0808 800 0303 and ask for the peer support service.
