Top 5 Keys to PD

This Parkinson’s Awareness Month, we want to hear your #KeyToPD.

Here are the Foundation’s top five keys to living a better life with Parkinson’s:

Find a neurologist. Regular neurologist care can save the lives of thousands of people each year. Neurologist care saves about 4,600 lives each year in the U.S. alone.

Get Answers. Call our 1-800-4PD-INFO (473-4636) Helpline or visit Parkinson.org to get your Parkinson's questions answered — at any stage of PD.

​ Put together a care team. People living with PD who seek expert care have better outcomes — complication risks are lower, they enjoy better quality and longer lives.

Establish an exercise routine. Increasing physical activity to at least 2.5 hours a week can slow decline in quality of life for people with PD.

​Get moving and socialize. Meet others with PD and families living in your area at your nearest Moving Day, A Walk for Parkinson's. Register at MovingDayWalk.org.
