KELSEY PHINNEY TALKS TO HER MOM, CONNIE CARPENTER PHINNEY, ABOUT BEING A PARKINSON’S CARE PARTNER FOR OVER 18 YEARS

Every obstacle presents an opportunity.

– Connie Carpenter Phinney

Parkinson’s impacts the whole family, especially those most involved in the day-to-day care of the person living with Parkinson’s. As a care partner, it can be easy to lose sight of your own health and well-being as you care for your loved one. However, taking the time to prioritize your own physical and emotional health will not only ensure that you have the stamina and bandwidth to care for your loved one, but the joy you get from taking care of yourself and minding your own needs will make a big difference in their life as well.

In this episode, Conne Carpenter Phinney shares her journey as a care partner to her husband, Davis Phinney, and the practical strategies she uses on a daily basis to stay healthy, connected and present.

Notes

  • It can take a year or longer to adjust to a Parkinson’s diagnosis and live with it
  • It’s important to teach your person with Parkinson’s to accept help from other people
  • Commit to continued dialogue about your experience and frustrations
  • Acknowledge that you hate Parkinson’s, too
  • Be sure not to confuse hating Parkinson’s with how you feel about the person with Parkinson’s
  • Create a safe environment in which to live – move or remodel if you can
  • If your person with Parkinson’s has REM Sleep Behavior Disorder, consider getting separate beds
  • Accept the roller coaster that is Parkinson’s and that there will be good days and bad days
  • When you have bad days, ask yourselves, “How did we get here?” (consider sleep, medication, food, exercise)
  • Always go to doctor’s appointments with your person with Parkinson’s. Record the conversation and be sure to go over what the doctor said when you get home
  • Take care of your marriage and keep honesty, humor and playfulness a priority
  • Avoid the temptation to feel sorry for yourselves
  • Every obstacle presents an opportunity
