Abstract

Many individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD) experience lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). These symptoms can be distressing for patients; family caregivers also identify the negative impact on their quality of life. This study describes coping experiences of female spouse caregivers of male veterans with PD and LUTS, and adds to what is already known about the PD caregiving experience by including a specific focus on LUTS.
