Substantial Matters: Life & Science of Parkinson’s

Nov 1, 2022

Caregiving can be an intensive endeavor, not to mention the physical, mental, emotional, and even financial aspects of it. Just as people with Parkinson’s disease need support services, so, too, do their care partners. In this episode, Social Worker Cara Iyengar, MSW, LISW, the coordinator of the Parkinson’s Foundation Center of Excellence at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, discusses some of the Foundation’s resources that she shares with care partners, her three-pronged approach to supporting them, some of the challenges she faces in bringing support services to people in a rural state like Iowa, and the kind of feedback that she has received from care partners.
