Parkinson’s is an insidiously complicated disease. The medical model often fails to fully acknowledge and address the complicated cognitive, behavioral, emotional and spiritual components of this disease which take a tremendous toll on the person with PD, and the family members who often become overwhelmed. As research advances, the complexity of the disease and the myriad body systems affected by it present new and greater challenges for treatment. Families need help advocating for creative, non pharmacological approaches to maximizing quality of life with PD. With the aging of society, the incidence of Parkinson’s is increasing. Learn what is known about the arc and progression of this chronic illness and what is new in PD care. Acquire new skills for empowering individuals and families to better manage the disease and mitigate the many challenges it poses for the family system.
