Overview of Parkinson's Foundation accomplishments throughout the 2017-2018 fiscal year, financially and service related.
As Parkinson’s disease (PD) progresses into the advanced stages, its symptoms can often become increasingly difficult to manage. Whether the person with Parkinson’s lives at home, in an assisted living facility or a nursing home, hospice services can optimize their quality of life and that of their family members as well.
A balanced diet is a foundation of good health. For people with Parkinson’s disease (PD), a balanced diet is even more important. In PD, there are some foods that may help to ease symptoms and help brain health, while others can affect the way medications work. While there are many things about PD that cannot be changed, the informed choice of diet can help people to live better with the disease.
