This is the final instalment of our three episode mini-series we are calling “The Talk.” Hosts Larry and Rebecca Gifford talk about how Parkinson’s can send them into a hopeless spiral – at times it feeling as if they aren’t both committed to the marriage. And then there are times when Parkinson’s brings them closer together than ever.
A difficult, intimate, deeply personal conversation about keeping connected and the importance of communication for people with Parkinson’s and care partners.
This episode is dedicated to our dog Nina. We mention her a couple times in here. After this recording, her health turned and she’s no longer of this earth, but is someone where she can run free, where bully sticks are unlimited and she is free of pain.
Thank you for listening.
