Parkinson’s Disease

Your Elder Experts has the specialized expertise and experience to help people with Parkinson’s disease, their families and caregivers.

Living with a chronic, degenerative disease can challenge even the strongest individuals and the most caring families. Partnering with a Geriatric Care Manager can provide an invaluable source of logistical and emotional support.

Day-to-day managing of Parkinson’s Disease involves a complex balance of drug interventions, communication with an increasing cast of physicians and specialists, emotional support, and family education. Caring for someone often requires balancing the timing of medications with physician visits, meals, activities, and trying to lead a normal life.

Your Elder Experts draws on resources, networking and support services to improve the quality of life of people with Parkinson's and their families.

Additionally, our Parkinson’s Family Support program offers a variety of innovative programs to help individuals live well with the disease.
