As people with Parkinson’s disease experience a variety of symptoms and challenges beyond movement problems, a comprehensive, team approach can benefit them with matters such as blood pressure drops, urinary symptoms, sleep disturbances, sexual and intimacy matters, and other quality of life issues affecting them and their caregivers. However, due to the associated stigma or potential feelings of embarrassment, people with PD may not bring these matters up with their clinicians. In this podcast, Dr. Tanya Gurevich, director of the Movement Disorders Center at Tel Aviv Medical Center in Israel, a Parkinson’s Foundation Center of Excellence, focuses on those problems that people with Parkinson’s often do not discuss with their care team but, for many of them, may have easy solutions.
