A recent study found that a Parkinson’s diagnosis affects not just one individual, but their entire family system. While some families ignore, deny, or avoid the changes this disease brings to their extended family unit, others communicate, acknowledge and adapt. How does your family talk about Parkinson’s? Has your family dynamic changed since diagnosis?
PMDAlliance can help bridge this gap. As we have built for support group leaders, care partners and other key members of the care circle, PMDAlliance has created a skills-based program specifically for adult children, friends and family of people with Parkinson’s.
