Self-Care for Caregivers is Key, says PAN Advocate Angela Robb

Angela Robb is a dedicated advocate on behalf of the Parkinson's community.  She is one of the Parkinson's Action Network's (PAN) Virginia State Directors, and is a carepartner with her husband, Karl Robb, who has young-onset Parkinson's disease.

Angela wrote a column this month for WebMD about the importance of self-care for caregivers and carepartners.  We hope you'll read it and offer a comment or your own advice and experience in the comments section of the blog post.  Please feel free to forward this message to your friends and family members – we think Angela's advice will resonate with anyone who lives with or loves someone with a chronic illness, disease, or disorder.
