Carepartner Support 

YogaReach promotes the Carepartner network.

In the midst of looking after another’s medical, physical, cognitive, emotional and financial concerns, the carepartner’s needs can become bewildered or just vanish. Throughout their partner’s diagnosis with PD, carepartners are challenged to meet their own necessities, become an advocate and at the same time, balancing their partner’s needs.

Our YogaReach sessions are adaptive and inclusive, which make them ideal for cultivating the needs of the support network. We teach carepartners which may include, siblings, spouses, children, aides, and others who may be lending a hand.

 

The role of the carepartner is twofold. The person is responsible for helping their loved one facing physical and/or mental challenges, while simultaneously taking the time to care for themselves. It is vital to focus on where you are now in your role as a carepartner, discuss changes, explain educational modules, attend to your own needs and share support as you participate in our educational journey

 

Our adaptive physical movements, restorative poses, and individualized support will increase needs and develop

a social networking group.
