April is National Parkinson’s Awareness Month. It might surprise you that about 1 million people in the U.S. and 10 million people worlwide are currently living with Parkinson’s disease. While most are diagnosed after age 50, about 10% are diagnosed younger with early Onset (or Young Onset) Parkinson’s disease. This all means that someone you know is likely suffering from this serious and debilitating disease that cuts across many demographics. Furthermore, many are young families with many stresses.
Sadly, there is no cure. However, we can manage symptoms with medication, exercise, and by developing a crackerjack team to help the family manage.
We understand that stress – we have been privileged to help many families as they cope with caring for their loved ones through this debilitating illness.
Please check out our new publication Signs & Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease.
For National Parkinson’s Awareness Month, we have selected posts to help you understand some of the latest research and spur ideas on how you can keep up-to-date on how to care for your loved one with Parkinson’s.
