The purpose of this pilot study was to determine the feasibility and tenability of the topic to understand the lived experience of caregiving for someone with PD to understand what is needed to prevent the negative effects of caregiving and the best timing of those interventions. Five participants were recruited and participated in this pilot study. There were four themes that emerged from the data: early education, open and honest communication, ongoing support, and accepting assistance.
