Description:

A majority of people with Parkinson’s live in their own homes with family members playing an important role in their care.However, the provision of such long-term care can cause significant distress and strain with many carers suffering from symptoms such as depression, sleep difficulty, anxiety and loneliness. Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is a widely used psychological treatment for a full range of clinical conditions and has been employed successfully in other carer groups.
