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.
