The Parkinson Association focuses not only on those with Parkinson’s disease, but focuses on how best to enhance the quality of life for those who are affected by Parkinson’s disease. Those who care for a loved one with Parkinson’s disease deserve some praise for their strength and patience with a progressive disease. Luckily, November is caregiver’s appreciation month and we have been sharing tips, stories, and resources.
