The best we can do to show our thanks and appreciation for our caregivers is to not give up and keep moving and have a positive attitude towards life!!Thank you all!!

That is a great question. My youngest sister moved to Georgia a few months ago. She wanted to be near me to help me. She comes over every day to help me do things or just to be with me.
I have told her many times when I am not having a good day. To over look what I might say or do.. I know I probably hurt her feelings at times.. And the list goes on...
I tell her many times a day that I love her and really appreciate everything she does for me..

I'm 73, diagnosed in 2018, still bringing in a full time paycheck. I try to stay active but mostly doing maintenance on my older sailboat, older motorhome, older apartment, older body. Who would have thought you could have so many additional ailments while battleing the prospect of parkinson's taking stuff away. So far my wife and coworkers are helping me along.

You thank your family and friends by "not quitting" and being as positive as possible. If this is difficult chose your very closest family or friend and designate them to be your "down in the dumps" receiver. You can write a message to them that they can delete or even answer as requested. Designate no more than 10 minutes a day to this endeavor.
