Sometimes Parkinson’s disease (PD) can complicate the basic daily activities a person with living with Parkinson’s once did easily, like bathing, dressing, eating, sleeping and even walking. It can be hard to adjust to these changes, but there are ways to improve safety while supporting a good quality of life. Review these pages for tips to ease:
- Home Safety
- Bathing & Grooming
- Getting Dressed

Also consider talking to an occupational therapist (OT), who can help simplify home safety and independence by suggesting daily living modifications or adaptations. Your doctor can give you a referral. Additionally, you can call the Parkinson’s Foundation Helpline at 1-800-4PD-INFO (473-4636) to find an OT in your area.
