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.
