Living with Parkinson's

While living with Parkinson's disease (PD) can be challenging, there are many things you can do to maintain and improve your quality of life.

Finding the balance between a proactive approach and wondering what lies ahead can be overwhelming. Enhancing your own PD awareness starts with gathering the information you need when you need it.

Living with a chronic and progressive disease like PD is no small feat. How you experience and react to life with Parkinson’s is unique to you. Work on maintaining a flexible mindset. Adaptation can take many forms. With some adjustments and working alongside your care team, you do not have to give up important activities or aspects of your lifestyle.
