Living with Parkinsons Disease

Living with Parkinson’s disease is not always simple. Since the disease is progressive in nature and cannot really be controlled, it will eventually affect all aspects of your life. From your social life to your work and other aspects of life, you may lose control over almost everything. There are a lot of support groups for those who have Parkinson’s disease, and for the caregivers as well. You can connect with local support groups through your health care providers or via the internet:
