Join our November Expert Q&A: Being a Caregiver with Maura Horton, The Care Coach

About this event

On Tuesday, November 9, Maura Horton, The Care Coach, joins our Expert Q&A series from 12-1PM PST to help answer the question, who will take care of the caregiver? Maura is a voice of guidance and experience for caregivers.

Maura Horton’s late husband, Don Horton, was a college football coach and former player who was also diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson’s. After witnessing Don’s battle with the disease and serving as his caregiver, Maura has become a Parkinson’s and caregiver advocate.

More about Maura:

Maura Horton, The Care Coach, is a voice of guidance and experience for caregivers. She was her husband’s primary caregiver during his decade long battle with early onset Parkinson’s disease. While caring for him, Maura pioneered the concept of adaptive clothing that prioritized function and fashion equally. She invented a patented magnetic closure system for clothing and launched MagnaReady, the world’s first magnetic shirt. A Fashion Enabler, Maura has been and continues to be a driving force of the adaptive clothing movement, working to develop inclusive clothing that meets the unique needs of people with disabilities without sacrificing personal style. Maura now consults with companies to create more adaptive products for the disability community. And, she is a sought-after expert on many topics related to caregiving. Some of her most notable guest speaker appearances have been the American Parkinson Disease Association’s Magic of Hope Gala, the Davis Phinney Foundation Little Big Things conference, and the White House’s Design For All Showcase.

Join us in 2021 for our virtual Expert Q&A series every second Tuesday of the month featuring experts discussing topics in Parkinson's.

Expert Q&A series presented by Amneal and Kyowa Kirin.
