I’m looking for a group where I can discuss how to care for a Parkinson’s spouse showing signs of MCI
Hello @davidjsr, and welcome to Mayo Connect.
I'm glad that you posted your question about Parkinson's (PD) and MCI. I would like to invite a mentor of Connect, Debra, @debbraw. Her spouse also has MCI and I'm sure she would be happy to post with you here on Connect.
Mayo has produced several pages and newsfeeds regarding MCI. Here is a link to those articles, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/page/living-with-mild-cognitive-impairment-mci/?utm_campaign=search
We also have a caregivers' discussion group on Connect. Here is the link to that discussion, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/caregivers/. Scott, @IndianaScott is the mentor of that group and I'm sure he will welcome you and share his experiences of caring for a spouse with brain cancer and also his mother-in-law with dementia.
Also, in the Caregivers' group, there is a discussion about caring for a spouse who has PD and Lewy Body Dementia. Here is the link to that discussion, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/caregiver-for-husband-with-parkinsonsons-and-lewey-body-dementia/. There you will meet @dem2301, @rmftucker, @maryterry and @grecarmar.
