Turning (Caregiving) Challenges Into Gifts – Talk by Local BSN Support Group Member, June 5

Longtime Brain Support Network supporter, friend, and local support group member Helen Bundy Medsger will be speaking virtually at a Parkinson’s support group meeting, on Monday, June 5, 2:30pm. Her topic is “How to turn challenges into gifts – a care partner’s perspective.”

During this talk, Helen will share hard-earned lessons. She’ll provide tools to build a village of care and coach you on how to turn the challenges of caregiving into gifts for those living with the disease as well as yourself. Helen’s presentation will include a framework for beginning the journey, and then discuss the importance of integrating components of self-care into practice. Lastly, she will share the voices of other caregivers she has mentored and worked with so you can learn from their combined wisdom.

We encourage you to register in advance to be sure you have a spot:

June 5, 2:30pm PT

Host: PD-Connect (Kentfield, CA)

Helen was the primary caregiver and healthcare advocate for two generations of her family who lived with Lewy body dementia (LBD). She is a UCSF caregiver peer mentor and facilitator of an LBD caregiver support group based in Santa Rosa. She is a staunch advocate for and active participant in neurodegenerative disease and genetic research.

We believe *all* caregivers can benefit from Helen’s talk — not just those caring for someone with LBD or Parkinson’s disease. This time slot is the regular PD support group meeting for  PD-Connect, a local PD organization in Northern California.

A recording of the talk may be posted to the  PD-Connect YouTube channel.
